  •  No, it wasn't (none)
    Boxer got a deal from Frist to bring a Boxer Bill to the floor in April, she got him to promise no amendments allowed, straight up or down vote, four hours of debate, during the day, during the week for all the good that's going to do.

    •  What about the house side? (none)
      It seems that little will happen if the house does nothing.. It is a push... and we lose without fighting.. Trying to not be pessimistic...lol

      Lots of people see the world in Black and White. It is mostly just shades of grey.

      •  You are right to be pessimistic (none)
        I see it not getting out of the new senate in the first place, and even if it does, the house can amend all it wants too, and still fail to pass it.

        Sorry, I couldn't find a bright spot.

          If they don't filabuster it to death, I agree that the house leadership will not let it come to a vote. It might pass if it comes up but I bet it will be poison pilled..
