Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday made the false claim that the Democratic Party had a 60-vote majority for two years after President Barack Obama took office.
During an interview with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Wallace pointed out that Obama had not accomplished “major entitlement reform” in his first four years in office.
“Every time he tries to work with [Republicans], they listen to [House Minority Leader Mitch] McConnell,” Villaraigosa noted. “What does Sen. McConnell say? His number one issue is to block the president, is to stop him.”
“But in fairness, the first two years, he had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and a big majority in the House,” Wallace argued.
