Is this a case of "we'd rather do something than nothing"? What a bunch of bullshit. Doing something that makes people worse off (in so many ways) is not something worth doing. Make a stand. GOP will make a passionate stand over the most trivial section of a nothing law if it could be argued that even a nickel of gov't money could be spent on something they don't like. Dems apparently won't stand up on a core issue that affects the meekest members of society. Amazing that this happens on the day after the Pres gives a bullshit lip service speech about inequality. Hopefully he'll veto. He won't.
