I believe McConnell said he is not going to put something before the President which he will not sign. That is his prerogative.

McConnell has abdicated his branch of Govt. to the Executive violating the separation of powers. It is an abomination. The Senate is a separate and coequal branch and is not under the control of the President.

The Democrats in Congress have abdicated representing their district or state. Both Schumer and Pelosi openly declare they make all their decisions for them. Why do other Democrats in Congress even bother to show up - among those who do?

And Senate Republicans are complicit with a criminal as President. I say throw them all in jail.

Would you please provide for us an example of something - perhaps you're referring to some legislation? Something Shum and Pelos have done that was so heignous against the good of their party?

Asking for a friend.

I believe a majority of Senators can override Dictator Mitch McConnell and vote on bills.
