Actually, although the Democrats control the Senate, they can't do anything because they can't overcome the supermajority the Republicans are forcing on every vote. It's hard enough these days to get Democrats to vote as a block (You posted near the start of this thread about the umbrella aspect of both parties), without having to peel off enough Republicans to reach the 60 votes required for closure.
