Perhaps it isn't just poisoning the bill? Perhaps it's an attempt to debate the bill and propose amendments that benefit their constituents? and when they get shut out of that prossess they are left with no alternative?

Are Democrats deluded enough to think that a sleaze like Harry Ried isn't culpable in any of this?
