    Take a look at tramps vetos , then compare the to Obama's:
    Donald Trump: Vetoed legislation - Ballotpedia
    Barack Obama: Vetoed legislation - Ballotpedia

    That shows one which got through to the Potus's desk for signature.

    I have to wonder why Moscow Mitch didn't ask Obama what he would approve.
    And then you have to wonder why all the bills sent to the tramps desk in 2019, bipartisan support , got vetoed.

    Really, Penelope, think.

    What is the point of Sen. McConnell scheduling votes for bills that will never become law because there aren't enough votes to override a veto?

    There may be POLITICAL reasons, but no practical ones for sure.

    OTOH, Sen. McConnell is working like crazy to get qualified judicial candidate confirmed and seated on the bench. Having votes on dead-in-the-water legislation is an act of politics not statesmanship.

    "Eleven of the 19 sessions between the 94th Congress and the 113th Congress had more than 300 House bills awaiting action by the end of the session, according to the Post and GovTrack."

    "But the current backlog in legislation comes amid an uptick in productivity for the Senate. The current Senate has passed more legislation as of May 1 than any Congress since the 110th Congress, according to a Congressional Research Service report."

    Seems like the Pelosi House is wasting its time.

    Instead of passing bills with bipartisan support, they are passing and forwarding pointless dribble.

    Sen McConnell and President Trump as well, would like to see Pelosi get off her octogenarian keister and get VIABLE bills passed.
