Barrasso and the supposed good will in the GOP
Barrasso (R-Wy.) wants the bill to sunset after five years. This amendment will die, fortunately, but don’t forget it. It’s emblematic of the supposed goodwill the GOP has in this process.
P.S. Lieberman is drowning Lautenberg in obsequiousness. It looks to me as if the chairman has simply accepted the likelihood that Bernie Sanders will oppose this thing and he’s counting on the New Jersey senator to pull the bill over the top. The vote’s coming up in moments.
