Our Executive in Chief routinely blames the Democratic house for no new legislation yet the facts tell a different story.
Democratic senators have been taking to social media to share photos of a pile of hundreds of bipartisan House-passed bills that still await action in the Senate as tensions continue to flare over the pace of legislation in the chamber.
“This is the pile of House-passed bills, 90% bipartisan, dead on [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell’s [R-Ky.] desk in the Senate #LegislativeGraveyard,” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said in a Wednesday morning tweet that featured a photo of a stack of papers labelled “Bills stuck in the Senate.”

Remember this braveheart stood up to simply argue for an amendment for his colleague back in June 2018. The lack of progress has slowed to a total stop on Mitch’s desk. No one can argue against this indisputable fact. The blame for Congress’s legislative log jam lies squarely on the GOP and Mitch’s shoulders. The one pulling Mitch’s strings is our Executive in Chief. Leading by fear is one style of leadership exemplified by despots all over this world and throughout history. Despots have followers and can be, at times very entertaining. Do they have the Republic’s interest and thus yours in mine?
