Cloture Refused/Reid Pulls Bill
Whew! This terrible bill goes down for revision now. Revision should be named total rewrite, since few of the provisions of the text are acceptable as they stand. The maneuver to ram the bill through failed, and the more people that actually read the monstrosity , the more hairs that stood on end. Few senators had truly read the entire bill. They were relying on staff to give them a precis and a go/no go signal. So it almost passed on the precis of weenies. But, it all ends well, for the moment.
