House to vote today on DC bill
Story here. Sounds like the leadership IS rushing the bill along. A lot of blue dog Demos in tight races were demanding the vote, to show their gunny credentials.
Again, how far the nation has changed. I can't picture Pelosi allowing it, or having her comrades pushing hard for a vote on it, a few years ago, and ten years ago arguing that something like this would happen would have seemed delusional. I remember the fight for FOPA, 21 years ago. We had to work hard, and make a lot of amendments, just to get the Reagan Admin. aboard, the House stuck us with a full auto ban as a price, the Senate added on amendments that made no sense just to keep the media at bay, and the whole thing took six or seven years to accomplish.
