View Diary: Have Dems sold out too early on immigration? Not if they want something to actually pass (317 comments)

  •  It probably does not have 50 votes in the Senate (7+ / 0-)

    That said, if there was majority support for it in Committee, it should have been put in.

    If it is amended out later, or negotiated out later, in order to get passage, well then that is what happens.

    I have a problem with the timing.

    A vote from Hatch now guarantees nothing.

    I understand the point on posturing for the House, I just don't think that ever works.

    We've been down this preconcession road before and it never has worked.

    I doubt it works here and I think this concession was a mistake.

    It is possible that there was not even a majority vote on the committee for it, but if that is so, I would like to know what Dems would vote against it.
