Democrats action about the 9/11 bill and small business bills is pure posturing. The Republicans want to add an amendment to insure none of this tax money gets distributed to illegal aliens. Fine, add the amendment and vote on it. The Democrats want to spin this like the Republicans are voting against benefits to 9/11 people. Seems like there is a clear right and wrong here.
But the local paper calls this a “gotch” amendment. When there is an amendment that makes sense to the majority of the people, why is it obstruction to want to vote on it?
