On Senate impeachment trial, @kasie : "The reality is that while MitchMcconnell's been pretty public about saying he wants to slam the door on president trump, and he is reportedly being stronger about that in private, it would take so many others to join him..." (1/2) #AMRstaff 

You also think about some of the stuff McConnell said today, using "we might be able to legislate our own ideas too" as a kind of threat. He should be able to legislate his ideas! And he should be trying to convince people his ideas are good!

. @stevebenen  argues McConnell lost and took an off-ramp... but "if the minority still exercises veto power over the majority" for most bills, then Democrats Manchin and Sinema are enabling two more years of McConnell gridlock. @maddow  @MaddowBlog 

McConnell said he’s ready to make a deal allowing Democrats to take control of the Senate, relenting after it became clear Democrats didn’t have the votes to eliminate the filibuster.

McConnell backs off Senate filibuster fight with Schumer

Remember that one of McCain’s biggest beefs was the lack of regular order in the Senate, and one of the things that drove him to buck McConnell. This childish rants he’s making ensure that Romney, Murkowski, and others will prevent the chaos he threatens.

Democrats need to treat this relief package (and their legislative agenda) the way McConnell treats Supreme Court nominations: you do what needs to be done to get it done.

The American people chose to retire four Republican Senators and elect a Democratic majority to this Senate. Senator McConnell’s proposal for how to organize the Senate is unacceptable—and it won’t be accepted.

Bernie hits McConnell: "Let me just make it clear for the majority leader, that 10 out of the poorest 25 counties in the United States of America are located in Kentucky. So maybe my colleague.. might want to get on the phone and start talking to working families in Kentucky."

McConnell refuses to call the Senate back into session to convict Trump. Why does one man — who only 1.2 million people voted for — hold absolute power over 330 million people?

All of a sudden Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are worried that someone in America might get a $2,000 check "who doesn't need it." Funny. They had no problem giving a $1.4 billion tax break to Charles Koch and his family with a net worth of $113 billion. What hypocrisy!

All of a sudden, mcconnell'>Mitch McConnell is "worried" about giving a $2,000 check to someone who "doesn't need it." That's funny. He had no problem giving a $560 million tax break to Sheldon Adelson who is worth $34.3 billion. Total hypocrisy! Let the Senate vote on $2,000 now, Mitch!

Bernie Sanders just stuffed mcconnell'>Mitch McConnell in a locker. “Let me just make it clear for the majority leader — that 10 out of the poorest 25 counties in the US are located in Kentucky.”

Trump's allies slam mcconnell'>Mitch McConnell for congratulating Biden via . Mitch, 75,000,000 @mailonlinees '>VO @MailOnlineES , a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!

So let me get this straight: Legislation to restore the Voting Rights Act has been sitting on McConnell’s desk for months — and he will directly benefit from his state allocating just one polling place for 616,000 predominantly Black voters? Can this be any more blatant?
