The only news stories I could find were about democratic efforts. What are the repubs up to since Graham's efforts in May?

Does anyone really think McConnell will allow any legislation to be considered, other than what his puppet master Trump allows?

This will never see the light of day unless Graham has the cojones to fold it into the amnesty modifications bill.

Gayle, Pelosi said yesterday that she had been in talks with Graham and saw some possible areas where they could maybe move forward together. So they are talking and that's a good thing.

McConnell is such slime. Congress is not supposed to do the President's bidding like some lap dog.

It's so stupid that one person can decide what all of the other elected officials representing us can vote on.

true Chi, McConnell has made the senate the servant of a russian puppet.

Wonder how and how much he's being paid?
