3. Howard said it'll be a bigger waste of time (if it doesn't pass committee) BECAUSE...

5. In other words no balance
I know... that took me by surprise, but it would be a stunning waste of time, for other reasons. We could have avoided the August mess

10. If it leaves us with only liberal bills, then its good. Howard thinks its bad.

Howie wants a broader range of tools in the toolbox for congress (meaning more options to gouge us), y'know all fair and balanced to beat back the liberal versions.
