jhlipton April 16, 2017 Share April 16, 2017 Senator Smirky (Bowman) introduced what's known as a "poison pill" bill -- it looks like it's in favor of one issue, but has enough "poison" in it that politicians who should be lining up to vote for it vote against it. Then their opponent can say "Politician X says they're in favor of [some issue], but why did they then vote against this bill?"

They said that it was flawed because on one side, it had far too many loopholes, and on the other was a "slippery slope" bill.
