15. What exactly is in the "fix"?
I suppose that would have a lot to do with my answer. If it is a real fix, then I will be happy. If it is political window dressing, I will be sad.

That is assuming that the fix makes it through reconciliation. I have to be honest and say that there are not 50 senators that I trust currently serving in the senate. And despite what a horrible horrible mistake it would be on any number of levels, I would not put it past the senate to agree to pass the fix, wait for the house to pass the original bill, and then stab the congress right in the back and fail to pass any fix, even via reconciliation.

I am a big proponent of passing a real "fix" via reconciliation. And making the senate vote it through BEFORE the house passes the original bill. Congressmen have to answer to us, more or less. Senators by and large do not seem to have any such worries.
