DSMike-"It is up to the Senate at that time to bring them to committee to hammer out a deal between the two legislatures". The legislative process is that the Senate doesn't take the HR bill and work on it. They produce their own bill and if it is different from the HR bill, a joint committee from both houses meets to hammer out any differences. The new bill is then passed through both houses- a subtle but very important difference from what you have posted. My point is that a bill that is patently not acceptable to the Senate and President is pointless.
