Who will vote no anyway if the bill’s not going to pass. They only way this hurts them is if they vote yes which they’ll only do if they think it might pass. What if they’re right? In fact, if Harry knows it won’t pass, he probably won’t even hold the vote.
That's what happened before. He pulled it because he didn't have the votes.
But it would have been great to see it go to the floor back then because the "FAIL" would have been a great point in our favor and an excellent defeat for Obama.
