Effectiveness

Some have pull:

Democrats may be running the House, but the National Rifle Association (NRA) can still stop a bill in its tracks.

House Democratic leaders on Tuesday pulled legislation from the floor that seemingly had nothing to do with guns because the NRA disliked it.

One Response to “Effectiveness”

  1. Mike Says:

    The bill was pulled because the NRA said they would count how Representatives voted in their NRA score, which gets publicized. Since this would no longer be a “consequence-free” vote for the non left wing D’s, they balked.

    It’s actually not the NRA per se, it’s the light of publicity – when constituents can see what the elect are doing, the elect act differently.
