In a rare move, Democrats invite Senate Republicans to COVID-19 relief talks


U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said on Wednesday that he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have formally invited Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans to bipartisan talks on new COVID-19 legislation.

“Our colleagues face a simple choice. They put the election behind them and work across the aisle to get something done, or they can remain in their partisan corner,” Schumer said on the Senate floor.

What comes of this is anyone’s guess. One thing is for sure, we are a country divided and our appointed politicians are not always doing what we as a society pay them to. Hopefully we will see some change for the better, but that may just be wishful thinking.
