    In what universe is letting the house vote on a bill bypassing the house?

    Reid won't bring bills to the floor.....The house will bring the bill to the floor and it will be soundly defeated.........Big difference my left wing friend.

    Nope. Holding a floor vote would be stupid politically for the republicans. This way, next election, depending on whom they are talking to at the moment, they can claim either side of the issue.
