Do we know why Frist voted nay after he and Reid voiced support earlier in the day? I know that if a bill is going to die, he needs to vote nay in order to be able to reintroduce it. Perhaps it's a hedge in case the reconciled bill goes down?

Call, write and email your Representative every day. If no action is taken before their summer break, see them in person and attend events where they appear if you can. Worth a visit to their local offices before they are back too.

No no no, Frist voted yea. The senator's vote is printed AFTER their name.

I had heard that some voted the way they did, due to close re-elections, so maybe.

The real vote wos the vote to end debate and considereation of amendments in order to vote.

Only 25 wanted to continue to change the bill.

There were 11 Senators who voted for it before they voted against it.

There are a lot more RINOs in the Senate than conservatives.

Conservatives almost always threaten RINOs.. RINOs almost always court conservatives in office. That is how they are able to convert conservatives to RINOs.

You do notice that when they are first elected they tend to be Conservatives. .. but after a few years they join the RINO ranks.

33 Republicans voted against this bill (the majority of Republicans). I can only pray the House sends this to the infernal regions where it belongs.

Has the amnesty bill actually passed the Senate or is it just out of committee?

Some reasons for Byrd and Stabenow voting no.
1. Re-election bids.
2. Objections of private sector unions
3. Low income voters in some areas of States not thrilled with amnesty program.

No, there are more conservatives than RINOs. But it's not that many, about a dozen, depending on the issue. Just go to the link where it says, "Grouped By Vote Position." In the NAYs ---36, there are only 4 dems.

I totally agree with you. The American people need to flood these schmucks with calls, letters, and emails. I can't believe these lunatics are so "in your face" like they're royalty and we're their subjects. This mess absolutely turns my stomach. I pray that the voters send all of them back to the real world. We need to clean house in DC.

From another thread on the same subject:


23 REPUBLICANS voted Yes
38 DEMOCRATS/INDEPENDENTS voted Yes
32 REPUBLICANS voted No
4 DEMOCRATS voted No

(Note: 2 pathetic weasely 'rats decided to wimp out and not vote: Jay "Let's warn Syria and Iraq they're going to be attacked and the media ignores my admission and then blames Bush when no WMDs are found" Rockefeller and Ken "Dr. Dobson is to blame for everything that is wrong in America" Salazar)

Let's do the math: 42% of the Republicans in the Senate voted yes
90% of the Democrats voted yes
58% of the Republicans voted yes
10% of the Democrats voted no.

Clearly, a high plurality of the Republicans screwed the pooch on this vote. You find the usual suspects here: Chafee, Collins, DeWine, Voinovich, McLame...and some are overall good conservatives if the ACU ratings are reckoned: Bennett of Utah has 87 lifetime rating, McConnell of Kentucky has a 90, Warner of Virginia is an 81, Gregg of New Hampshire is a 79.

I hope the "let's abandon the Republicans" crowd can clearly see the problem isn't with the Republican Party as a whole, and I hope they work to change it instead of walking completely away and turning the federal government over to the 'rats.

58% of the Republicans voted yes

No, 58% of the Republicans voted no, i.e. 32 out of 55 pubbies voted Nea. Otherwise, I agree with your sentiments. Staying home or voting that would give control of either House in Congress to the dems can rarely do any good. The exceptions for me are when the RINOs are especially egregious, particularly with the Second Amendment.

So, we have nine Dems and nine Republicans who are on this committee. Of the nine Democrats, all voted for the bill. Of the nine Republicans five voted for the bill and four did not. That means you have fourteen out of eighteen who will be pushing for this thing in conference.

Given these odds, it is obvious the house members will have to make a determined stand for what's right. Those "sinators" never like being told what to do, and our president will be pressing them very hard to give an early Christmas present to his buddy Vicente.

It is in our favor that this is an election year, and every member of the house is up for re-election. They will be less willing to cave if they understand that their constituency will give them the boot if they sell us out.

What difference does it make? We, the conservative republican base, have given the republican party control of both houses and the WH and they still bend to the whims of Kennedy and Reid? Anymore, if the WH race was between Kennedy and Bush, I would probably vote for Kennedy! At least I know what I am getting with that vote? If the republicans have a secret motive for voting they way they did in the Senate, they damn well better soon announce it! I am obviously not happy with our elected majority......

here is a way to get emails through to all the staffers!

http://www.outsourcecongress.org/Outsource/congress/schstaffers.html

Email your Congressional Staffers

1. Why email a Senator's global email box, one that gets thousands of emails per day?

2. Who reads the global box? Probably an intern? ...just like an intern answers the phone.

3. With this tool you can email the CHIEF OF STAFF directly. So when he sits at his computer/Outlook your email is in his personal-work mailbox.

4. It sort of moves your issue up the priority list.

Try it, let them know how you feel. If you have any questions/issues, email us at Admin@OutsourceCongress.org

If you know staffers in district offices, please forward them to us.
