He called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McMConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass the proposal, saying they have a “chance to do something badly needed for our country.”

McConnell has said he did not believe the floor had enough time to pass the proposal this session.

This, after several Democrats opted out of a meeting outlining legislation on Wednesday.
