    I bet this is about as popular as Bunning asking where the government was going to get 10 billion to extend benefits.

    We need this amendment. Offer it as a referendum for the entire nation. It'll be overwhelmingly approved.

    It would be nice if that were true - but I wouldn't be so confident.

    It would be decided by the same voters that gave us Obama.
