If the $15 bill vote was still open until 9:15pm last night, why wasn't there any negotiation with the Hateful 8 about extending the number of years to get to $15? Seems as tho' most of the negotiation was about UI benefits rather than $15.

is still voting voted on ridiculous GOP amendments, yet, Bernie’s bill was not allowed to included as an amendment. While Bernie wanted to get the votes on record when the media was watching, I don’t quite understand why he didn’t introduce it anyway, or why there wasn’t any horse trading, such as $14 per hour and over 4 years, rather than no increase at all.
