55. I did hear that they would attach Gregg's amendment
And it's how the Dems got S1 moving.
The LIV is not a show stopper for me if it means getting the min wage bill passed. IMO, the LIV will make the exec responsible for vetoing specific pieces of legislation and sending them back to Congress. If the president uses the LIV, it'll have his name all over it, rather than ignoring it with a signing statement that slides past the public like it does currently.
I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd rather see the LIV in the bill than allow the min wage increase to be defeated again.
