I think he's 100% right


I know firsthand how it used to work. Yes, there were strong partisan differences, but in the end, the best interest of the country prevailed. That all changed with the Tea Party, where the other guy winning meant that you lost. And it has only gotten worse.

Unlike you, I don't blame the six Senators. Just look at what happened after the infrastructure bill that Biden mentions...those who voted it for it were publicly singled out and pilloried by members of their own party. That NEVER used to happen (remember Reagan's 11th commandment.)

It's easy for us armchair QBs to question their motives, but knowing that casting a single vote could jeopardize your career of course enters into their thinking. Even more so if you follow the dead man walking path of Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Jeff Flake and others.

I hope he's right that things are changing, but let's face it...as long as Orange Jesus is in the picture, petulance and revenge are the names of the game.
