The goal is to get Senators on the record to build public support and for future purposes.
The House voted on the bill even though it was going nowhere in the Senate. That doeasn't mean we gained nothing. It gave us a record of who voted for it and didn't vote for it. There are now 4 Dems in the Senate on the record of voting for it in the House that they can not back away from anymore.
