So, assuming the vote on final passage tracks this one, not a single Democrat decided to vote against the bill on the substance. Â I guess I’m mildly surprised.

Â I guess I wish I were surprised that no Republican took that stance; instead, they stood shoulder-to-shoulder for obstruction, all the way.
