It isn’t really the worst thing that could happen. Now they all have to go on the record and we get our list of who to vote out of office in 2014. Plus this is going nowhere in the House.
“Plus this is going nowhere in the House.”
There will be a lot of pressure on Boehner to bring the senate bill to the House floor. I’d prefer that the House pass it’s own bill and the senate and house go to conference. They’ve been doing whatever possible to not have conferernce committees. They want to get both houses to pass bills quickly so the president can have legislative victories.
Also, I’m sure Pelosi will try to get a discharge petition to bring the senate bill to the House floor, and she needs only 218 signatures for that. And moderates love helping the democrats undermine conservatives.
I think the assessment is that red state Democrats will use this opportunity to vote against the legislation, because everyone knows it will never pass the House, that way they can run back their constituents and say “see! I voted against it!”. It’s a ploy.
We already know who those people are. They need to stop using our God-given rights as a political gotcha game.
"Plus this is going nowhere in the House."
It could, and should, have been killed dead in the Senate. When will Republicans learn to quit falling back and stand and fight for once?
It does matter, the Senate will vote on that UN anti-gun treaty.
Now we know who stands with America on that piece of garbage.
“It isnt really the worst thing that could happen. Now they all have to go on the record and we get our list of who to vote out of office in 2014. Plus this is going nowhere in the House.”
Sounds a lot like what I kept hearing on ObamaCare. You assume a whole lot.
The whole point of this is to get house members on record. The Dem consultants want it. I won't get into a discussion of whether or not it will help or hurt some or all of them, that's a discussion we have had all over FR for years. I'm just pointing out that the Democrats believe it will help them with liberal-women turnout in contested house races.
Famous last words.
That's what you think. What you think may have little to do with reality.
Oh, don't worry..It will never pass the house...(snicker)...

Do we really believe that the cockeyed politicians are going to give up THEIR rights to arms.?? Half of them are crazier then $HIT HOUSE RATS..!! They got their head doctors on call 24-7.. DC is prozac city..!!
