The Republicans are busy crafting an alternative bill, according to Politico:
One top Senate Republican aide called Grassleyâ€™s alternative bill â€œa break-the-glass kitâ€ in case Reid does round up 60 votes.
Bloomberg is doing everything he can to round up 60 votes. Yesterday Joe Donnelley caved to Bloomberg pressure, showing his office is willing to be run from Gracie Mansion, rather than from voters in Indiana. Who else is going to cave? Clearly there’s some concern the Democrats can come up with 60. They actually can’t do it without some Republicans, but they are clearly looking for those.
