You can bet there was SOMETHING ELSE in that bill that was objectionable. That's usually the reason why one party votes against a bill. Someone inserts something in it, like sleight of hand, that's objectionable.


These days it seems the only way to get something passed is load a bill up so that it has 55% good stuff and 45% crap. The reason it passes at all is the wording is just vague enough for both sides to think they have the 55%.
