Outright hypocrisy?

Frank, still an opponent, said Democrats under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi do not subscribe to former GOP Speaker Dennis Hastert’s policy of passing major bills only if most of his party’s members supported them. Such a stance, which essentially renders the minority party irrelevant, “is very antidemocratic, hyperpartisan,” Frank said.”

When have they passed anything that a majority of Democrats didn’t support since they’ve controlled Congress?

Anything?

In fact, even on the contentious issues they have refused to compromise with the ‘minority party’… instead preferring their super-majority to make Republicans ‘irrelevant’ except in some extreme cases where they were filibustered.
