I was recently asked about the point of supporting legislation that will stall in the Senate.

My answer: my job is not to appease Mitch McConnell. Whether it’s gun violence prevention or holding the President accountable, my duty is to do what’s right for the people of CA-45.
As I said at my town hall on Saturday, if I only got out of bed on days I voted on something I thought would pass the Senate, I would have bedsores. politico.com/story/2019/08/…
The fact is: both chambers of Congress have important constitutional roles in the legislative process, but inaction is not an option. @senatemajldr should start legislating and bring bills to the Senate floor for up or down votes. The American people deserve no less. #DoYourJob
