    Why don't you ask them yourself. I'm guessing it's because they were against it.

    So Dems that voted it down were against it, but Republicans that voted it down were just being spiteful?

    Sounds like something Ravi or Silence would say.

    Ah and it is impossible for a republican to be against it for any reason other than spite?

    But seriously, talk about some really ignorant irony. "Fuck you Pelosi! This isn't about partisanship, and to prove that, we're going to be partisan!"
