15. I will have to respectfully disagree - neither of us will convince the other

I see what is one of the few real opportunities to pass something that will at least improve a very bad situation for millions of people. You see a possible "gain" for a potential Republican nominee. In a way, you are arguing that we help kill the bill. As I said the bill is a mixed blessing for a Republican. Remember how McCain completely did a 180 on his position to make himself viable in the primary? Remember Romney sounding idiotic speaking of self deportation? This is not a popular position for the right. (I suspect that it may mean that Rubio will NOT run in 2016 when it will be too fresh -- hoping to be in position when it is not something angering the base in 2020 or 2024. He is young enough that he can do that and be better positioned to win. )
