    It wasn't agreed to by unions, businesses, Trump, etc, until recently. Even now it's being tweaked.

    Why has the Senate been sitting on close to a hundred bills passed by the House without debating a single one?

      Not one of those bills were passed by negotiating with Republicans, finding common ground, and making compromises.
      Congress has plenty of lawyers who can churn out bills that have no chance of passage.

      What they don’t have is the spirit of cooperation or the will to put America’s interests first.

    Because it makes no difference.

    The new accord is marginally different form the previous one, and the previous one remains in force until replaced by the new one.

    Essentially, this whole costly mess was a plan from Trump to have HIS signature on an important paper. That's it.

    Delaying the fat moron has value in itself.

    The original proposal was viewed as flawed by the Democratic leadership in Congress.  They said the original terms were too harmful on subjects like the environment, and trade by farmers between the U.S. and Canada.  The USMCA has recently been modified and both Democrats and Republicans are now satisfied with the new terms and it is set to go forward.  It was just all about compromise.
