Why are the democrats having such a hard time to get the climate bill passed if they have the majority?



  1. 0 Votes

    The democrats do have a majority, but they no longer have 2/3 of the seats in the senate, there fore they cannot pass a bill on their own.  In congress there are currently 57 democrats, two independents and 41 republicans.  Therefore, the democrats would need all to vote together, with the two independents and at least one republican to get a bill through.  Also, if possible, they try to get at least a few republicans on board so they can call the bill bipartisan.
