The bill is expected to be voted on by end of year according to Rep. Hudson as he was told by House leaders.

If it can be brought to a floor vote, it'll pass easily in the House. The problem will be in the Senate. There are probably enough votes to pass with Rs alone, but not enough for cloture to allow the floor vote to happen. It would have to be merged with another "must pass" bill in committee, which is controlled by Rs, or added during reconciliation.

Stick it onto a budget or tax bill. Neither side will touch it if it means losing money. (By which I mean "being limited in the amount of money they can take from We the People").

I doubt it. You can always count on the Collins and McCains of the world to suddenly demand "bipartisanship."

With Black Friday, previously known as Thanksgiving Holiday, right around the corner there cannot be many more working/voting days left this year.

I guarantee though next election they will be out there campaigning about how they need our help to get more R senators elected so they can push this through without any D holding it up.

It's a shiny object/red meat they think they can dangle in front of one section of the electorate and lock up that vote so they can spend their time and money on other hard to get sections.

This might hold water if the bill was shot down (not getting 60 votes in the senate and all GOP voting YES).
But not allowing a vote? Can't hold Dems accountable on that one.

or it could be that they haven't done jack shit and they NEED to do something before 2018 elections.
