Thanks SeekAndFind.
On Tuesday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) decided to file the amendment... He was forced to withdraw the measure last month when several Democrats told him they would oppose it if it threatened the overall passage of the bill... little chance of passing on the Senate floor, however, Leahy declared that the fight for equality was the right thing to do... While he supports same-sex marriages, left-leaning evangelical leader Jim Wallis, agreed last month that entangling gay rights issues in the immigration reform discussion is a bad idea... last month, Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.), a gang of eight member who helped craft the bill, noted: "You've got me on immigration. You don't have me on marriage. If you want to keep me on immigration, let's stay on immigration." In his remarks, another gang of eight member, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), noted during the same debate: "As much as it pains me, I cannot support this amendment if it will bring down the bill." ...could enable gay couples to petition green cards for their foreign partners.
This is a masterpiece of having your cake and eating it too, perhaps on both sides of the aisle. The bill is not going to pass, just as the gun control crap didn't pass, and in the 2014 election campaign, the Pubbies aren't going to be culpable for so-called gridlock.

What makes Rubio a unique politician is not that he speaks out of both sides of his mouth is that he does it in two different languages!
