Senate & House Coverage -- (April, 2007)
thomas.loc.gov ^ | April, 2007

Posted on 04/09/2007 7:03:04 AM PDT by Mo1

Thank you, OXENinFLA for putting together the below comments and links!

.

Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America.", I and others think it's a good idea to centralize what the goes on in the Senate (or House).

So if you see something happening on the Senate/House floor and you don't want to start a new thread to ask if anyone else just heard what you heard, you can leave a short note on who said what and about what and we will try and find it the next day in THE RECORD. Or if you see a thread that pertains to the Senate, House, or pretty much any GOV'T agency please link your thread here.

If you have any suggestions for this thread please feel free to let us know.


Here's a few helpful links.

C-SPAN what a great thing. Where you can watch or listen live to most Government happenings.

C-SPAN 1 carries the HOUSE.

C-SPAN 2 carries the SENATE.

C-SPAN 3 (most places web only) carries a variety of committee meetings live or other past programming.

OR FEDNET has online feed also.

A great thing about our Government is they make it really easy for the public to research what the Politicians are doing and saying (on the floor anyway).

THOMAS where you can see a RECORD of what Congress is doing each day. You can also search/read a verbatim text of what each Congressmen/women or Senator has said on the floor or submitted 'for the record.' [This is where the real juicy stuff can be found.]

Also found at Thomas are Monthly Calendars for the Senate ,

Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats

And Monthly Calendars for the House and Roll Call Votes can be found here.

YES...the MSM have purposely pushed up the campaigning time of the 2008 election to just after the 2006 vote..IN ORDER...to use their resources to frame the war, while helping the Dem candidates...have the benefit.

I have NO doubt that the MSM is determined to put who THEY want in the White House next year..they will continue to frame, skew, distort, lie....about the news to make that happen.

LOL, good grief, the snivelers would be complaining if the commanders had ordered them shot dead, on the spot with loot in hand. Howling about how we ruined our opportunities to show we are civilized, bla, bla, bla.

Lordy.

Did you hear James Webb??

He gets on his high horse about how the GOP shouldn’t be so mean...but he actually said that the POLLS and the polling of the TROOPS show that they want the DEMS plan!!

That guy is such an idiot...and then I hear Schumer say that Bush just hides in the White House and listens to a group of advisors but NOT the generals...

The are all lying out their rear ends...

The IRAQIS are NOT happy with the bill the Dems voted for yesterday...so, I am guessing they aren’t going to be happy today, either.

The dems by this vote not only sent a message to all the terrorist

They also sent a message that the United States cannot be trusted and our word means NOTHING

Good going Dems ... you just screwed us all for YEARS to come

I guess they don’t think it is important to have their names in the Congressional Record of having voted AGAINST this surrender bill.

I happen to think that it is important..and Smith and Hagel are worse...but to NOT be there for this vote, and have your name down for which “side” you are on, the American or the terrorist side...is indefensible..except for Sen. Tim Johnson.

I hate to say this...but all of these people doing it NOW ...and on c-span 2, AFTER the vote...doesn’t cut it.

I know, I know, I am always crying because they don’t do that...but no one cares now!!

The vote is OVER..and the DEMS won....THEY will be able, with the MSM’s help, to shape the next story about this as how they DID fund the troops, but it was Pres. Bush that vetoed the bill..therefore HE is the bad guy, not them.
