Former Police Workplace Who Shot and Killed Daunte Wright Will Be Charged With Manslaughter

A handful of more moderate Senate Republicans thought they would be at the center of the legislative negotiations with President Joe Biden, but are instead on the sidelines as the Democrats push a broad agenda.

Members of the so-called G-10 say they are ready to negotiate deals with the White House after steering COVID-19 aid under former President Donald Trump, but they are largely irrelevant and unable to maintain the reputation to shake the GOP as obstructionists, Politico reported.

“It’s a terrible nightmare,” complained one G-10 employee. “Biden is a terrible villain to us. There are deeply ingrained narratives that have some truth but are no longer entirely true. Reporters believe them despite all evidence to the contrary. “

Staff complain that the White House “keeps rubbing dirt in the faces of Republicans” by inviting them to White House meetings while the Senate Democrats push the legislation through a narrow majority through reconciliation.

“If you get an invitation to the White House, go to the White House,” said another G-10 official. “Anyway, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. If you go to the White House meeting, you run the risk of being used in a sham attempt at impartiality. If you don’t go, it says, “Oh, the Republicans won’t even meet with me.” It all depends on whether it’s a real White House offering or just part of their messaging strategy. “

The Senators – including Susan Collins (R-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) – may not like the situation, but they are reluctant to give up the White House Biden zu is firmly in control of the narrative.

“Everything they support is defined as either COVID relief or infrastructure, and everything they oppose is like … repression and evil from Jim Crow voters,” a G-10 aide said Madness. But it works. “
