Rachel Maddow (April 4, 2007) An Open Letter to Senator Hatch [Updated]
Sen. Sherrod Brown weighed in on why he thinks the Republicans are pushing so hard not to get anything passed and if he has any idea what they will do to keep the bill from passing. He said they're ready to keep them up all night if they try to add too many amendments. If that's true I say what took them so long? They should have been doing that before the tea baggers were taking over the town halls. I'm not wild about this bill but at this point I don't see how it is good for Democrats to not pass it. They get the worst of both worlds if it fails. They live with what the voters think of it after they see how it actually affects their own lives if they do. If they're not happy about it then it will be based on some facts and not Republican fear mongering and spin.
