Senate Republicans are signaling they are open to cutting deals with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden if he wins the White House in November.
GOP senators — adding the caveat that they are supportive of President Trump — say there is room for agreement with a Biden administration, particularly on areas like trade or immigration, if they hold on to the Senate majority in November.
Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the No. 2 Senate Republican, noted that typically new administrations get a honeymoon period and a divided government could force compromises.
One GOP senator predicted that a Republican-controlled Senate could be beneficial to Biden because it would give him a buffer from progressives in his party who, if Democrats controlled both chambers, would likely try to drive him to the left.
I’m sure they are, to get stalled republican dream items like cutting SS…..

Failing to see what’s new about this ‘news’.
Even stalwart Democrats like Colorado’s Pat Schroeder noted long ago that Biden gave short shrift to his Democratic colleagues in Congress while stumbling all over himself to work with Republicans like Danforth.
