Passing this at least gives those who care the tools to make up their own mind without listening to the hyper partisan hyperbole that comes out of our politicians. The Republicans and Democrats are both at fault for over politicizing everything and being simply concerned with acquiring more power for their own party. Very few concern themselves with interpreting, following, protecting, enforcing the constitution of the United States. This is the job of the 3 branches of government. If we as Americans can simply agree on that and have that as our binding principle we can debate the details. Until we get there however, power will continue to be the football without regard to the sidelines or end zones.
