    So SB 810 goes down.

    But these 6 abstainers and Nay voters will hear from us.  They might as well be Republicans.

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

      they abstained first -- if they abstained because of familial connections to the health insurance industry, I'd prefer abstentions than an outright "No" vote.

      Sometimes there is a good reason to abstain, just as a judge will recuse himself/herself when faced with a case where there is personal interest or knowledge.
