    Gee so are all the Democrats who are signing on to it. And if you think the amendment won't go dowm on a nearly straight party line vote you are kidding yourself.

    If all the Democrats co-sponsor for it and support it, then how is it going down on a nearly straight party line vote? :eusa_eh:

    four of them did and their grandstanding. Just because you cosponsor an amendment doesnt mean necessarily that you have to vote for it.

    No, but the odds are you will. We'll see how it goes. But let's talk about the facts instead of wishes and ifs.

    The fact that these Republicans wanted to act like Democrats did not want this bill when clearly at least some do to the point they are willing to co-sponsor this bill.

    Neither do I see Republicans lining up to Co-Sponsor this either.
