It was comical watching wyden (doh) suggesting that, after 10 years of not getting the job done, he wants to take credit for Demint's bill - then threw that cart in reverse when offered to write it up within the next few days ~ we're not ready yet and never will be but we'd like you more and agree that you had a nice thought if you just give us back the ball

Basically Wyden is saying “if you help us make it easier to ram through legislation today... someday in the future I’ll sign on to the idea that a tiny, tiny brake be put on ramming through new legislation” ... and it is a tiny brake compared to what DeMint wants to do, which is make ALL bills open to scrutiny for at least 3 days... while Wyden only agrees to a law saying legislators must “read” all bills (how are you going to enforce that????).

Basically Wyden is saying: “I will gladly pay you a penny on the dollar Tuesday for a hamburger today.”
