That didn’t take long.
According to recent reports, Bernie Sanders doesn’t want to play the “unity” game anymore.
“We all want bipartisanship, and I think you’re going to see more of it as we move down the pike,” the Vermont senator said Saturday, according to Fox News. “We all look forward to working with Republicans. But right now, this country faces an unprecedented set of crises.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders: “I don’t care what anybody says. We have got to deal with this pandemic… if Republicans want to work with us, they have better ideas on how to address those crises, that’s great. But to be honest with you, I have not yet heard that.” https://t.co/eM1xLScCMr pic.twitter.com/pbAnK7lQfa

I’ll translate: I was for unity, before I was against it, says Bernie. I was for working together last week, but now I’m against it.
This is the new motto of Sanders and many Democrats, including President Joe Biden himself, who is threatening to use reconciliation to pass a new relief bill.
“All of us will have differences of opinions, this is a $1.9 trillion bill, I have differences and concerns about this bill,” Sanders said of Dems on Saturday, “but at the end of the day we are going to support the President of the United States.”
