Under The Radar

Republican enigma-

This is very confusing to me-
The Republican Civil war started after impeachment and sides are being rapidly chosen between Rule of Law Republicans and Trump MAGAts with most still sitting on the fence buying time, but it appears that the MAGATs far out number the opposition.
Only 27 house republicans accept Trumps electoral defeat and only a hand full of Senators have. These are the leaders that were more than willing to shut down the government for a month because Trump didn’t get his Wall funded. The Trump supporting Reps have placed the life and health of themselves and their constituents in jeopardy by following Trumps anti Covid protections. It is almost like they would follow this guy off of a cliff in a Thelma and Louise fashion.
With that, what is the Theory behind the number of Republicans willing to jump in a bucket with Democrats just to override Trump’s planned Veto of the Defense Appropriations?
Is that a testament of how strong the Military Industrial Complex is and how much the entire congress fears it?
