While I’d love for them to kill it on the merits, senators should look at the polling and see this bad bill is bad politics. Here’s the latest from Rasmussen.
Among the public, there is a bi-partisan lack of enthusiasm for the Senate bill. It is supported by 22% of Republicans, 23% of Democrats, and 22% of those not affiliated with either major party. It is opposed by 52% of Republicans, 50% of Democrats, and 48% of unaffiliateds.
