3. The Senate will be the Senate
I'm pretty sure if Stabenow would have been the deciding vote, she'd vote the right way.

We lost this vote before the votes were counted. Stabenow was allowed to vote on the winning side so it couldn't be used against her.

Bouchard is a sherrif, this issue is right in his wheelhouse. If Stabenow votes on the losing side of this bill, Bouchard can play it for all it's worth. This specific bill, this specific issue...Stabenow might as well do this because we lost this vote way before she voted. Her vote didn't matter, because the Senate is 55-45 Republican.

Sure, I WISH she would have voted against it. But I understand why she didn't.
