I remember when he was trying to pass Obamacare. The big, and very long, fight wasn't with the Republicans, it was with the Democrats! By the time that got done there wasn't a whole lot of time left to do anything else. Its really pretty strange. This time its happening again! They could get the house and the senate for 4 straight years and have to fight their own party to get anything passed. Right now they have two bills to pass. One that everybody wants and the other is, literally, thousands of pages of Democratic wet dreams. The first can actually passed but a contingent of the Dems are going to fight it tooth and nail until they get their heart's desires and I doubt that's gonna happen but, then, who really cares?
If the Dems actually cared the small one could pass so they are fighting the passage playing "my way or the highway".
