9. got to do it in the House also

I think they need @ 50 more to override. That may be really hard. I am guessing most of those are in gerrymandered, far right districts.

6. Nice, BUT it's just a show-vote

Unless there are enough to override a veto.it's nothing..

They just did a "SusanCollins", but when it counts, they will gather under Mitch's shell for cover, and let the veto stand...
