Even if the Dims get cloture, the Repubs can slow this down voting for amendment after amendment to lard it down. The bill goes to the joint house meeting where the two houses again have to agree to pass the same bill. Time is not on the rats side. Tick toc tick toc.... Dems - oh damn - time’s up, it is January.
When it comes to trickery and deceit never count the Democrats out. I am hoping that the Republicans can stall them and limit the damage they cause. But I also know how the Democrats operate.
When they kept the witch as their House Leader and Reid as their Senate leader, they are signaling that thhey are ready to fight. I just hope that the Rwepublicans are up to the task. History is not with me on this one.
