How would Congress vote if Independents had their way?
The sense of Congress is that...
(There) are important issues that will have long-lasting effects, and if they're not voted on before the November elections we should wait until the newly elected Congress meets. The will of the people as expressed in the election should be reflected in those policy decisions.
The minority position is that (there) are important issues that deserve to be voted on by Congress as soon as possible. If Congress cannot get to them before the election, then they should be addressed in a lame duck session immediately after the election regardless of the election's outcome.
