Mitch McConnell said today that he can't call the Senate back in session yet because staff needs time to draft gun violence prevention bills. Yeah, right.🙄 Here are four pieces of legislation we already passed in the House that @senatemajldr could hold a vote on TODAY:

(thread)
1. #HR8, The Bipartisan Background Checks Bill would expand background checks on gun sales — including those at gun shows, over the internet or from private dealers –– that currently don't require a background check. Total no-brainer and supported by over 90% of Americans.
2. #HR1112 would close the Charleston loophole, which enabled Dylann Roof, the murderer of nine innocent churchgoers in Charleston, to get his hands on a handgun he would have otherwise been denied, due to a delay in his background check processing. This happens too often.

Yesterday, I flew. There were harrowing moments: A hole patched with duct tape, terrifying wind.
Then there was the TSA. And we should talk about them, the #TrumpShutdown and why it's time for a national strike or sickout.
Are you part of a group? Tag or share. Let's talk.

Doing their job, checking the bags, doing their best to keep things moving in the face of a terrible government that is FORCING them to work without pay. I thanked every one. And to the one they knew: What choice did they have? If they struck, they'd be fired.

That is why others with the ability to strike - Pilots, Flight Attendants, Mechanics... ANY union that allows the wheels of America to keep moving in the face of 800,000 people and their families suffering need to pick a day or a week and "get sick." /3

@realDonaldTrump (1/4) We already have a barrier. Problem with illegal immigration isn’t immigrants, it’s the legal immigration system. With 9 million mixed citizenship households, $7,000 process, 10-20 yr. wait and 60% from visa abuse; walls won’t solve problem. Fix the system, fix the problem
@realDonaldTrump (2/4) Donald Trump and Republicans need to stop lying to the American people. Democrats don’t want open borders, terrorists are not crossing the southern border and we have a barrier in place already. We need more monitoring security and personnel, not a wall
@realDonaldTrump (3/4) Democrats already tried to secure border and reform immigration system with S.744. Republicans don’t want to solve illegal immigration. You don’t fix a leaky ship with the passengers inside. Fix Quotas, VISA’s, Refugees, DACA, then you build your wall

Senator McConnell is speaking on the Senate floor about passing a bill to deny women comprehensive health insurance covering all reproductive needs-- including abortion care. No mention of paying federal employees though. Tell your senators to vote no: bit.ly/NoOnS109
S109 would make the Hyde Amendment permanent-- meaning McConnell is pushing a bill to deny federal employees health insurance coverage of abortion care while blocking bills that would open the government & give them a paycheck. #WheresMitch bit.ly/NoOnS109 #NoOn109
Yesterday, we heard from a federal employee who, due to the #TrumpShutdown & the Hyde Amendment, is not able to afford the abortion care she needs. Fortunately, we were able to help her while she waits for a paycheck. prochoice.org/mcconnell-file… #WheresMitch #BeBoldEndHyde #VoteNo109

“I am amused with [Democrats'] comments about obstructionism. I wish we had been able to obstruct more...if I would have had enough votes to stop them, I would have.”
Senator Mitch McConnell, on the 111th Congress, 2010
nytimes.com/2010/08/15/us/…
"The two forces that characterized Mr. McConnell’s career, obstruction and increasing the power of corporate money in our democracy, have worked hand in hand to diminish the Senate and paralyze American politics."
