As factual matter:
Obama /Reid /Pelosi failed w gun-control measure after 2012 Newtown massacre for one reason only: M McConnell led GOP filibuster in Senate.

Make no mistake: After they borrow $1.5 trillion to pass a windfall tax break for corporations and the rich, Trump, Ryan, and McConnell will seek cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to pay it back.
The FBI kept an open counterintelligence probe of the GOP nominee secret at McConnell’s behest while the Director twice violated DOJ guidelines to hit Clinton’s campaign.

McConnell in 2010: Don’t vote on ACA until Scott Brown (R) is seated.

.@realDonaldTrump now knows that his verbal abuse will no longer be tolerated. His empty chair photo opp showed he’s more interested in stunts than in addressing the needs of the American people. Poor Ryan and McConnell relegated to props. Sad!
A reminder: @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell made the Senate this way, because this is how he wanted the Senate to be in order to try and derail President Obama. He has to live with what he made, and Democrats are under no obligation to save him. #TrumpShutdown
