I know everybody in politics has been saying it’s ‘Tump’ Republicans party now…..
But THAT is in the process of changing…
Donald Trump wanted a delayed election….
Nope ….said his party’s lawmakers…
Trump had been advertising a possible messy transition….
Nope….said his party’s lawmakers….
Trump wouldn’t let his Treasury Sec. cut a deal with House Speaker Pelosi because his party lawmakers have soured on more virus stimulus money going out to regular Americans…
Nope…said his party’s lawmakers…
Now we have a scared President Trump wanting a YUGE stimulus bill?
Nope….say’s his party’s lawmakers….AGAIN….
You can listen to the pundits writing about ‘Trump’s party’…
Donald Trump is in a dumpster with his polling….
People in HIS party ARE beginning to worry about THEMSELVES….
They want to be around even if Trump loses….
(His losing could be BIG)
Despite the noise?
Republicans , mainly in the US Senate , ARE increasingly saying ‘Nope’ to an increasingly desperate President Trump…
They ARE trying to stay healthy and confirm Amy Barret , a conservative Federal judge to US Supreme Court, a Republican Party agenda for decades…..
The party all the sudden IS worried about spending Federal money…
Something they overlooked during the last few years ?

The call with Republicans comes after Trump has yo-yoed this week about what he would accept in a fifth coronavirus relief package, from cutting off the negotiations at the start of the week to suggesting he wanted to go even higher than Democrats, who are sticking with their $2.2 trillion price tag.
The fierce pushback from Senate Republicans comes as Pelosi was also critical of the latest offer from the White House, calling it “one step forward, two steps back.”
“When the President talks about wanting a bigger relief package, his proposal appears to mean that he wants more money at his discretion to grant or withhold, rather than agreeing on language prescribing how we honor our workers, crush the virus and put money in the pockets of workers,” she added in a “Dear Colleague” letter…..
