It gets better-this is CNN, not Fox.
"We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made." M.Facklam
Most bills 'making their way through congress' seldom emerge in the same form as introduced, if they emerge at all. Is the bill as presented a POS? I think so. If you want to influence the way a bill will be voted on by your representative, make your feelings known by contacting them and expressing your views. What is not helpful is the 24 hour cable news cycle ( CNN,FOX,MSNBC, etc) presenting these things as done deals. You have a voice, use it, through letters, emails, or the ballot box. You're only as helpless as you allow yourself to be.
One cannot reason someone out of something they were not reasoned into. - Jonathan Swift
