When Bad Things Happen to Bad Bills

Looks like the much discussed immigration reform effort has gone off the rails in Senate. Read all about how "a bill doesn't become a law." I would have to say this is a good thing. Even a compromise bill passed in the Senate would have to then be mixed in with the evil House bill, which would result in a bill that was at least 3/4th evil. (Roughly speaking, calculating the exact outcome when evil and not-evil legislation comes together is always tricky, something to do with pH levels and the absolute temperature of the space were Bill Frist's soul would reside, if he were to have a soul)

Better the bill just die.

Too bad the same thing didn't happen to the Medicare drug bill. It would have saved many seniors a lot of grief.
