“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.
"You'd like to THINK that, wouldn't you?"
What is a “moderate,” except a liberal who is ashamed of it?
