Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has developed a reputation for obstructing important legislation and judicial nominees proposed by Democratic leaders in a nakedly partisan and undemocratic manner.  Most recently, he refuses to allow a vote on legislation to reopen the US government. McConnell prefers to allow Americans to suffer painfully, over permitting democracy to proceed.

According to ShareBlue:  "In a statement on the Senate floor, McConnell said, 'The Senate will not waste its time considering a Democratic bill [to reopen the federal government] which cannot pass this chamber and which the president will not sign.' But just two weeks ago, the Senate passed that same legislation via a voice vote."

The Constitution provides for veto overrides.  It is up to Congress, not McConnell, to vote to override a presidential veto.

Censure McConnell for using naked partisanship to keep America suffering under a meaningless government shutdown.
