    annominous this? Add some things in there that would actually help.

    •  i think because it was a motion to suspend (0+ / 0-)

      the ability to add amendments would require a vote against the motion to suspend and pass, all at once.  The question then becomes why the Dems didn't try a motion to suspend the rules for Head Start funding.  

      I thought this outcome was a possibility for some of the military cuts, but either way, the main action has already moved to the FY 2014 budget negotiations, largely superseding questions of the sequester.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
