    Right now, Senator Deb Stabenow (D-Mich) is speaking out against what the "deal" does to the Farm subsidies portion of the deal.  She is very upset and sounds ready to vote no on a deal.  Also, she is being joined by Senator Merkley.

    They are both very upset.  Instead of fracturing the Republican Caucus, it looks like leadership's desire for a deal, any deal however crappy, is fracturing our caucus.

    I hope the whole thing falls apart!

      The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.
