therefore, the bill must survive the house/senate for these veteran’s families to be granted visas. for the bill to get the votes of the house majority, the bill sponsor must campaign within the representatives. if this bill will be heard in the floor, again the bill sponsor must bring in good convincing speech/debate. the first hurdle of the bill is to get the house members majority allowing the bill to be presented for hearing, without the house majority, the bill will be dead on arrival. the second hurdle for this bill will be the senate majority votes to become a law or the senate will filibuster the bill passed by the house, same way like dead on arrival. the DC politics are all about mobilizations in the grandest numbers of interest groups, from diverse ethnic communities lobbying/fighting for the specific cause, putting hard pressures on these politicians with strong messages of getting unseated in power, by voting them out on their reelection bids.
