ALL bills from the US House of Representatives should be voted on by the US Senate.
Mitch McConnel does not agree.
Changing the balance of power slightly would break the logjam that McConnel imposes. All bills passed by the US House of Representatives would get a chance to be voted upon by the US Senate. And then if they pass in the Senate by the President.

One person stopping the flow of legislation is unacceptable and not fair to US Citizens who deserve more from Senator Mitch McConnel who swore an oath of impartiality.

By trying to push through a Supreme Court nominee before the country can vote for a new president, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may actually imperil the power he has wielded so effectively over the years.
There is a subtext to this strategy that's worthy of examination.
Amy McGrath Explains
