Apparently you never heard of the filibuster rule in the Senate.

Interesting, republicans have never put a bill for voting till Dec 2018, if I am not mistaken. There were other budget maneuvering done to overcome the filibuster. If it is really priority they could have got it done. After all the corporate tax cut was passed without a single democratic vote and one republican voting against it.

I don't think it is because of the votes, even republicans didn't believe in it. Now, it is all politics. Both sides have established their position and not going to budge.

What is real funny is American congress cannot get its budget act together and they are telling various countries on how to run their finance.
