The House of Representatives has recently passed several bills designed to open up different parts of the government. However, and this is the scary part, Mitch McConnell will not allow the Senate to vote on any of these bills, because he does not believe that Trump will sign them into law.
Is it possible, that our country has a Senate Majority leader who does understand that we have three (3) independent Branches of Government?
Is it possible, that our country has a Senate Majority leader who does not realize that the Senate is allowed to vote on bills, without first getting those bills approved by the President?
Mr. McConnell says he does not want to waste the Senate’s time by having them vote on bills, that Trump will not sign, however, he was willing to waste the Senate’s time on numerous occasions, when he had the Senate vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, even though he knew President Obama would not sign any of them.
What is Mr. McConnell afraid of?
- Is he afraid that some Republican Senators might vote in favor of re-opening the government.
- Is he afraid that some Republican Senators would have to go on record as refusing to re-open the government?
- Is he afraid that the bills might pass the Senate, and force Trump to go on record as vetoing the re-opening of the government?
- Is he afraid that the Senate might override Trump’s veto?
There can only be two (2) possible answers, either we have a Senate Majority Leader that does not understand how the three (3) Branches Of Government work, or he is intentionally obstructing those independent Branches of government from working.
Either answer, scares the shit out of me.
