Whether it's weak or an abuse of power or a malicious neglect of constitutional duties is up to the American public to decide. If the GOP holds the Senate in 2020, then the American voters will have retroactively endorsed Mitch's approach and given it democratic legitimization. On the other hand, if the American public agrees with your take, then the GOP will be punished at the ballot box. Isnt democracy wonderful? ^_^


incorrect. He is violating his constitutional duty.
because he doesn't get voted out, does not make it ok. You tRumpers have lost your minds

This exact reasoning is why the founders made the senate elected by the state governments. The senate was supposed to be a calmer chamber that could be more detached and logical while the house could be filled with firebrands and reflect the direct will of the people (which is also why there was a definite ratio of people to representative, so the reps could actually represent their constituents)

had the senate been elected by state governments, the end of jim crow and the passage of the civil rights act would have occurred several decades later than they already did.
