Until the Republicans have a 60 vote majority in the Senate we're stuck. Remember that when elections roll around. The Senate can't do much with 51................

Remember as well that elections often don't turn out as planned or hoped either. That 51 risks the distinct possibility of not being 51 after November. Then the cry will be we don't have the votes. They found a way to pass a tax cut and avoided two shutdowns. Find a way to make a deal on funding the wall before there is no art to be found in any deal.

"The party of the incumbent president tends to lose ground during midterm elections: over the past 21 midterm elections, the President's party has lost an average 30 seats in the House, and an average 4 seats in the Senate; moreover, in only two of those has the President's party gained seats in both houses."

You are sounding like Mitch McConnell now.  If we had 60 votes, part of those votes are RINOs and would not change much.  We can try and hope but I don't see much chance for progress.
