President Biden has a two-thirds approval rating. In a majority rule society, that is overwhelming unity. The republicans can either come on board or not. But Biden has already unified the country in the way that matters, and he’s going to carry out his unified majority’s agenda.

Yes, President Biden is meeting with the ten Republican Senators who are offering him an absurd lowball “compromise” on COVID relief. That’s because he has to take the meeting, or else they’ll criticize him for not taking the meeting. But Biden has all the leverage, and he knows it, and so do they. Biden will get his relief package with fifty votes through reconciliation if the Republicans don’t cave.
