The legislation was adopted by unanimous consent after the Senate voted, 96 to 3, to end debate on the bill, which was approved in the House last month by a vote of 417 to 2.

My takeaway from the large margin of support is that this bill is a sham and won't do anything substantive.

I seem to remember that it had teeth when it left the senate. But some of it was removed in the house version and said removals was accepted.

I'm sorry, are we suppose to pat them on the back for applying rules to themselves which they impose on everybody else?
