2. That's an excellent point, but it's been an uphill fight

I have faith in Joe Biden's negotiating skills, his is the most experienced POTUS in our history. But he is between a rock and a hard place since McCarthy is unlikely to back down after shooting his mouth off all week, not to mention the pressure he's under since his role at Speaker is precarious. At least if they can come up with a compromise that will result in the least harm, we can count on a Democratic House in two years - and Jeffries as Speaker. *fingers crossed*
