When Reid sets up the repubicans like this....why don’t they just not vote...

Then all the stand alone dem no votes would show up...

The vote was to debate the bill on the floor...

Have a debate....

I think a walk out is long overdue. It’s time for a vote of no confidence in the government followed by an abandonment of this rigged system.

I think that may be because a member of the Senate can change his vote before voting (time) expires. If the Democrat managers caught wind of the Republicans sitting out a vote (ie. voting “present”), then there would be a lot of vote flipping, or pressure to do same.
