Which gets to the central point that for all the warnings about majoritarianism there really isn’t any part of the American system that, right now, works on majoritarian terms. Majorities cannot directly elect the president, or elect majorities in the House or Senate.

Obviously their first choice would be universal assent to their ideas, but in a world where controversy is inevitable don’t underrate the extent to which the White House and Senate Dems welcome a national debate about billionaire tears.

On police reform legislation, @DevalPatrick : "this bill has been pending for a year. It was passed overwhelmingly in the house. It has been stuck in the senate for the same reason that reforms locally and in state houses across the country have been stuck..." (1/2) #AMRstaff 

The fight over statehood for Washington, DC. And, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stays out of a fight over eliminating the Senate filibuster. My look:

Is Washington DC a state? The House approved a statehood bill Thursday, as a Senate fight looms in the effort to make the District of Columbia the United States' 51st state.​

US Senate passes Anti-Asian Hate Crime legislation, Advancing It To The House

The Florida Senate unanimously passed a bill to increase unemployment compensation and boost the eligibility period. But with no companion bill in the House, senators are begging their counterparts act now:

While the House doesn't not keep track of how many members have children, the Senate said at least 11 out of 40 Senators have one or child or more under the age of 18. We spoke with three of those families to get an inside look at what it's like.

Lincoln Project calls for immediate House impeachment and Senate conviction of Trump to force his expedited removal from office.

The House & Senate should IMMEDIATELY Approve 25 Billion Dollars for Airline Payroll Support, & 135 Billion Dollars for Paycheck Protection Program for Small Business. Both of these will be fully paid for with unused funds from the Cares Act. Have this money. I will sign now!

The Democrats in the House are trying to undo my big win Travel Ban Bill, which successfully keeps very bad and dangerous people out of our great Country. Passed along party lines. Hopefully, will be DEAD in the Senate! The Dems have gone Stone Cold Left - Venezuela on steroids!

So after the Democrats gave me no Due Process in the House, no lawyers, no witnesses, no nothing, they now want to tell the Senate how to run their trial. Actually, they have zero proof of anything, they will never even show up. They want out. I want an immediate trial!

The House cannot choose our impeachment managers until we know what sort of trial the Senate will conduct. President Trump blocked his own witnesses and documents from the House, and from the American people, on phony complaints about the House process. What is his excuse now?

Cryin’ Chuck Schumer just said, “The American people want a fair trial in the Senate.” True, but why didn’t Nervous Nancy and Corrupt politician Adam “Shifty” Schiff give us a fair trial in the House. It was the most lopsided & unfair basement hearing in the history of Congress!

Hope that all House Republicans will vote against Crazy Nancy Pelosi’s War Powers Resolution. Also, remember her “speed & rush” in getting the Impeachment Hoax voted on & done. Well, she never sent the Articles to the Senate. Just another Democrat fraud. Presidential Harassment!

Remember Republicans, the Democrats already had 17 witnesses, we were given NONE! Witnesses are up to the House, not up to the Senate. Don’t let the Dems play you!

If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!

Crazy Nancy wants to dictate terms on the Impeachment Hoax to the Republican Majority Senate, but striped away all Due Process, no lawyers or witnesses, on the Democrat Majority House. The Dems just wish it would all end. Their case is dead, their poll numbers are horrendous!
