    Word is that Mitch McConnel didn't want to miss the Kentucky Derby this weekend..

    He has plenty of time to delay, obstruct, fear monger and block the bill....why mess up his fun?

    The repubs realized their move would backfire on them at the polls.

    We only bitch at them for being incompetent. For refusing to help clean up their mess.

    no, they said they now had confidence the debate would be bipartisan, their tactics worked, instead of allowing the dems to run roughshod with another outlandish democratic bill....they wisely delayed to create stronger reform...
