Congress can override a presidential veto

In Washington, D.C. the House is passing legislation that the Senate will not take up. When will Senate members remember they have 60 votes to override promised presidential vetoes?

As long as President Donald Trump keeps making money, he has nothing to lose by keeping part of the government closed.

Contact Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst and ask that they use their influence to get people back to work.
