umm...isn’t this a tactic to force a vote from at-risk dem senators. They vote against the bill (and with their constiutents) they risk the ire and lower donations from the DNC and people like Bloomberg. If they vote for the bill then they’ll get six gazillion phone calls from their constituents. Either way, a floor vote hurts some vulnerable dem senators.

Unless the crack fairy delivered some seriously good stuff this morning, this bill is DOA in the House.

I do not like the gamesmanship. Prefer the fight out front.

There may be some valid tactical reasons to do this, but I cannot see it.
