It seems like bills are only put up for vote when the votes for and against are known beforehand. So, does it matter what they debate about during the actual sessions of Congress? Is it purely for show? Or is it for their constituencies?

Another way of asking my question might be this: are any members of Congress actually persuaded by the speeches of other members?
