Why do you think the Senate should be wasting time taking up bills from the House that have a 100% chance of being veto'd by the President.
They should take up the bills to show a little backbone. The large majority of them think that shutting down the government over this dumb wall fight is a fiasco, but they're too afraid to say it. Hell, the overwhelming majority of them know full well that Trump is totally unfit for the job, but they just play along for fear of upsetting his base.

So, in your opinion debating and voting on bills that are DOA shows backbone. Well, in my opinion telling the D's in the house "We are not going to waste our time debating and voting on pointless bills." shows more backbone.
In your opinion should Harry Reid have taken up the House bills during the last shutdown?

Oh, well excuse me, I didn't know you were psychic and could tell what people are thinking.

My statements that just about everyone in Congress (R and D) thinks that Trump is a clown is not based on guessing or wishful thinking. It's based on numerous conversations I've had with a bunch of people (R and D) who work on the Hill (including one former R senator).

Yeah, I doubt it. Going to need some evidence there Carnak.
Also, you have this habit of not answering direct questions, typical ok deal trait. so about Harry Reid doing the exact same thing?

Believe me, don't believe me. I really don't care, but I'm certainly not going to give you any additional confirmation of my conversations with people with inside knowledge of what's going on on the Hill. You'll just have to take the word of a Republican senator, who acknowledged last year that most of the Republicans in the Senate believe that Trump is unfit.

As for Harry Reid, your comparison is simply wrong. Reid allowed multiple Senate votes on the House funding bills in 2013 and they were voted down.

You have given me no information to base believing or not believing you on. You'll have to excuse me if I don't just accept the unverified word of a random internet liberal as fact. BTW, Senator Corker does not equal "just about everyone in congress"

.

The article you linked was before the shutdown, during the shutdown Harry Reid wouldn't put forward any bill that didn't include obamcare. He did then exactly what you are admonishing republicans for doing now. Here is a good article that explains the utter hypocrisy of Democrats on this issue. https://www.al.com/opinion/index.ssf...schumer_s.html

From the article I linked about Corker:

Quote:
All but inviting his colleagues to join him in speaking out about the president, Mr. Corker said his concerns about Mr. Trump were shared by nearly every Senate Republican.

That article doesn't address the question of whether Reid refused to even hold a Senate vote on any bills that passed the House, which is that McConnell is doing.

Senate Democrats simply tabled House passed bills avoiding debate or consideration. It's another example of Harry Reid using parliamentary maneuvers to bypass regular order and thwart debate.

Boehner did his usual collapse to the Democrats forming an alliance with the Democrat minority and go along get along members of his caucus to give Obama what he demanded. Unlike Boehner Trump will not surrender quietly to the Democrat hyperpartisan and he is such an effective communicator the Resistance media has resorted to censorship to try to contain him.

Before getting too carried away with the McConnell not doing his job whine fest, remember that Harry Reid led the way by ignoring more than 60 Obamacare reform bills over the course of several years.
