  •  Isn't the amendment just business as usual (1+ / 0-)

    for the loony Right? Bring in guns, gays, gods, and abortion to rip apart any reform that threatens their corporate overlords. The attempt was inevitable. That it won is another mark of shame for the Democratic Party.

    Problem with it losing in the Senate, which seems extremely likely, is what then happens in the House when the bill goes to conference?

    •  I think Pelosi (0+ / 0-)

      will have 218.  She released some people to vote no after she knew she had it this time, and a big chunk of the amendment supporters voted no anyway.  Plus, I can't see people like Marcy Kaptur, Jerry Costello and Tim Ryan voting no on the bill just because the amendment got stripped out.
