During a television interview, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that 395 bills sitting in the Senate are not going to be passed.

On Fox News Friday, anchor Bret Baier asked McConnell if Democrats' statements about those bills were true and whether they could move forward.

McConnell confirmed that it was the case, but also said that proposed legislation would be rejected.

"They've been on full left-wing parade over there, trotting out all of their left-wing solutions that are going to be issues in the fall campaign.

McConnell explained that the bills would not get passed, because the government is divided.

She has said that bills are sitting in a "legislative graveyard," during this cycle.

Earlier in the interview, Fox showed clips of Democratic presidential candidates criticizing McConnell for not passing bills. »
