24. Technically, they aren't taking anything away, rather, banning future sales. Not sure how I feel
about this. Seems to be a tough time to be putting this idea forward with everything going on, and I agree with someone up thread, that this decision could result in spending some serious capital. GOP heads will explode over this.

The article does make it sound as if this could be some sort of a trial balloon to test public reaction. There is no definite time-frame, and Holder is quoted as saying he's not sure even when this would happen due to the amount of issues currently on Obama's plate.

Perhaps they are going to measure the temperature of the responses to this idea and decide against it which could be a very bright political move in the sense that it will look as if Obama really listened to those in opposition, but if they do in fact make the decision to move forward, they face the risk of heading directly into the quagmire.
