    No, they have some reason to stall. I don't know what it is. No one knows.


    Why would they do that?
    They would do that because its right, but they didn't do it.


    The question is pretty simple:
    Why would the GOP NOT fillibuster a bill thay they believe will be bad for the country?
    Again, its a mystery.


    It wasnt bipartisan because it didnt gain support of both parties, as reflected in the vote tally. A few defectors does not a bi-partisan bill make.
    That's what a bunch of definitions, including the one I showed you, say.
    Bipartisanship is the support of members of the two parties, not every single member.

    In the vote tally, it was like all the Dems and 3 Reps for the bill, which means the bill had support from both parties.

    But you assert that "a few defectors does not a bi-partisan bill make." Then this brings me back to the question I asked before, which you did not answer. Is there a rule of some kind that says "this certain number of supporters constitutes bipartisanship?" How many supports from both parties would there need to be to make it bipartisan?

    Because they don't have good ideas anyway.

    The only Republicans "good ideas" are like your post....taking a Democratic idea and putting their name on it. Thanks for the example.
