As often as not the dirty tricks are political tricks. They CAN be fought, but the reality is the "opponents" don't really want to. Just like EOs. People can talk about how ridiculous the EO allowing murder of a US citizen on US soil without due process is and how Obama is at fault, but in the end congress supported the measure and it allowed them to avoid going on record with a vote of any sort. The rules are old, all of these tricks have been done before or at least talked about and both parties have people who work full time strategising how to manipulate the rules. I don't buy the "we never saw that coming"
If such an amendment is attached and NRA correctly grades the vote, it won't work. NRA supported Hughes amendment, and that was why it passed with this trick even though the amendment passed with a fraudulent voice vote.
