  •  the issue isn't whether it would pass the House (2+ / 0-)

    the issue is that it would have passed the Senate if Reid had invoked the nuclear option.

    what more does that misguided, spineless old fool need- he had 56 votes set to vote for it (57, because his no vote was procedural) and 85% of the country supporting the measure in polls.  

    In my book, that's a win for the country and for the Dems.

    And had it passed the Senate, it would have gone in to reconciliation with whatever crap the House passed- and background checks would have been on the table, and given the Republican House more rope to hang themselves with.

    Gutless, appalling. Truly appalling and shameful.

    20 kids dead. 85% of the country saying do it.
    Exactly what is that fool keeping his powder dry for?

    Reid was the only one in the country who had the power to pass this bill.  

    He's dipped his own hands in blood. I don't care who primaries that SOB, I'm donating to them.

    Disgusting. By allowing this legislative travesty, Reid has demonstrated that he's no better than McConnell.

    And if this comes down to saving Reid's own sorry ass from getting booted out of the Senate, all the more pathetic.
