We are optimistic that once the Marketplace Fairness Act is brought for a vote, it will have enough support to pass, said Illinois Democratic Sen. Richard Durbins spokeswoman, Christina Mulka. If it has enough support to pass, let it stand on its own merit and don't piggyback it off a defense bill.
I agree, but it should not piggyback on any bill. What's next: the "Equalization of Opportunity Act" and the "Anti Dog-Eat-Dog Act"?

I hear you. Hence my comment about letting it stand on its own merit. If they truly thought they had the votes, they wouldn’t be attaching it, they’d let it ride solo. They know they don’t, so they’re piggybacking it. It’s an outrage. Next they’ll be introducing 10-289.
