Technically the Republicans could argue they are still the Majority Party since the Democratic Caucus includes 2 independents and 48 Democrats, but I don't see that happening since it doesn't really matter for any practical purposes.
This is not true Joe. McConnell prevented bills from even being considered by the Senate.
Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get to me.
