    We hear of that happening constantly over here. There appears to be a very loose criteria for doing this in the area of association to the main bill being voted on. Our system is rife with bad behavior and scheming activity.

    One issue, one bill, one vote - that way no one is forced to vote a measure in that they disagree with in order to get something that they really want passed.

    Yup. I swear they do it on purpose, so that you're damned if you do & damned if you don't.
