Their argument was that Reid said they could debate the bill and offer amendments. When harry ends debate and allows no amendments to be voted on we’ll see how they explain their vote.

The final bill can be filibustered according to news reports.

We’re told that the vote allowed the bill to proceed with the provision that it receives free opportunity for amending and free and full opportunity for debating.

That means there will be other opportunities for filibustering or killing the bill.

And it still has to pass the House, no matter what comes out of the Senate.

Also they fall back on the argument that the House won’t pass it anyway.

Just what Bush said when he signed the campaign finance reform bill - It’s just smart politics. Don’t worry the Supreme Court will throw it out.
