I wrote those things under influence of being anti-American. Are you anti-American too? If the administration have more issues internally, they will have less time for external ones. That is a win for rest of the world.
Mitch McConnell has spent the last twelve years destroying the legislative branch so he could pack the courts. If this bill passes, it will undo his entire legacy. All of his long years of obstructionism, and absolutely nothing to show for it. After this, there will never again be another Mitch McConnell.
You are wrong about Mitch.
He defended the filibuster under Trump administration. He refused ending it when Trump asked him to do it multiple times.
Republicans could easily destroy everything Democrats defend when Republicans controlled both chamber of Congress under Trump. But Mitch refused doing that.

These two are not the same. Republicans are right about redistricting. It is the prize of being incumbent. Redistricting is a common political practice in almost every country.
In a federal system like in the US, each state is represented equally regardless of its population density. Republicans control more places on the map so they have this advantage.
