Here’s what would be kind of funny. Suppose Collins, Snowe, Kirk, Brown, Muckowski, etc - some of those folks - all vote for the bill, and Reid picks up enough Republican votes to pass it.
Suddenly, that would put Democrats - like Tester, McWhatserface, The Nelson’s, etc - in the position of having to kill it. Or face a brutal election environment with even more pathetic voting records.
If I was a GOP Senator not up for re-election, and/or with sufficiently established conservative credentials - like Jim DeMint or Marco Rubio, say - I’d consider voting for it just to put the squeeze on the Dems.
Then we would see the Democrats kill the bill. Very Funny!
With all due respect, I’m laughing hard enough already./sarc
Why must conservatives need to play games instead of getting out over the heads of the press and telling the people what the truth is. It’s not like it is tough because almost always the truth is far simlper to grasp than a lie, and it is always repeatable.
