    Don't give them time to gin up a ruckus. It's not like they and the people didn't know this was coming. Don't let them delay it any longer than you have already. If you give them enough time, they will moan and groan all over the airwaves and try to do to this what they did to health care reform. Give them a day and then get it done.

      sentiment got through to him, because in the original report he was implying weeks of delay, or longer, as he was going to deal with several other bills first.

      Someone must have pointed out that this will become a rally banner for right-wing blogs and radio, perhaps, spooking those Dems in vulnerable states.
