There is no bipartisanship because Republicans don’t want it

President Biden met Monday with several Republican senators, supposedly in the interest of exploring the possibility of getting 10 Republican votes in the Senate to pass a coronavirus relief bill. If Biden knows what is good for him, this will be a simple feint to get some positive press. He almost certainly would not be able to get 10 votes even for a pared down version of his bill, which is already a compromise from what is needed. Among the group are several hard-right conservatives who will be extremely reluctant to vote for anything that Biden supports — so if he agrees to it, to them it will become bad by definition.
