    From what I can gather nobody seriously expects this will work, but it puts pressure on the Rs to get moving on doing it the right way. It may be that they got enough to suggest they were serious and might pull that trigger if need be. They also will need some R votes on the petition, and may be waiting to see if any of those folks will step up - or have mobilized the R moderates to try to get the leadership off the pot.

      ...to use all procedural means at the disposal of Democrats to move toward action.

      If all Democrats are signed on, there is no ground for the Republicans to stand on procedurally that it is not their shutdown.

      The appearance is the main reason that I was asking whether every last Democrat in the caucus had signed on to the discharge petition.
