13. Only if they can't get the unanimous consent

to discharge it from committee. One objection to the unanimous consent and it's killed.

Democrats could try to attach it to a Continuing Resolution to continue funding the government (the current one expires December 5th I think).

But agree that if something like that did pass, it could be pocket vetoed (which happens between Congressional sessions because the current one could adjourn to seat the new Congress in January). However, since they have pretty much made pro-forma sessions a standard practice, there would probably not be a formal "adjournment", so he would need to affirmatively veto.
