Republicans in the house have passed several bills that have never been voted on by the senate. The reality is, the statement is true that they will not pass anything meaningful. They simply do not have the votes in the democratic senate to pass anything they see as meaningful. They also have a president who would veto any attempts they might make.
Democrats of course would argue that Republicans are not passing anything meaningful because they do not want the president to get credit. There are as usual arguments being made on both sides.
