If anyone was watching and heard a cheer from Senators after an AYE vote was announced toward the end and didn't know why, it was Lautenberg's vote. He's been ill and came in to vote despite still not being well. The applause was not particularly for the yes vote, but for his determination to come in and cast his vote.

Generally yes. I'm surprised she voted for this knowing that next year will be a very difficult election for her. Perhaps she has forgotten just how important gun rights are to the people of Louisiana.

Grassley-Cruz Amendment to allow interstate concealed carry and calls for tougher enforcement being voted on now. Has no chance, obviously.

We'll see. It would have to motivate some normal non-voters to come to the polls against her to make a difference. No one who normally votes for her will care that she voted for something that seems so reasonable on its surface.
Frankly I'm surprised that things like this aren't passed easily. The resistance may be stronger than Obama and co. think it is.

I think it's mostly that there's about a year and a half before the next election which is plenty of time for all the hidden gems in the bill to come out. The Senators know they will be held accountable for this so they are going to be a bit more wary. If this were pushed during a lame duck it would pass no question.

I disagree. I think if Cassidy is smart, he can spin this otherwise. It will be interesting to see.
