Posted on 11/21/2009 9:43:50 AM PST by kristinn
C-SPAN 2 is carrying the Senate floor debate live this afternoon.
The Democrats control the floor right now. Earlier, Republican Senators Judd Gregg, Kit Bond, Jeff Sessions and David Vitter gave good speeches and dialogues on the budget-busting effects of ObamaCare.
Maria Cantwell is speaking now. Mary Landrieu is excpected to speak shortly.
The cloture vote is scheduled for 8 p.m. EST tonight.
Every once in awhile I manage to make one .... must be my lucky day. ;-)
It is GRATING on my nerves !!!!!!!
“Yeah, true you know what I meant though.”
Yep...sorry, no offense meant...didn’t mean it to sound like Mr. Know-it-all...it’s a pet peeve of mine that I always pipe up on because it was such a good and favorite story of mine and my kids...
Out they go, every last one of 'em. Time to drain the swamp.
This bill gives new meaning to the gov’t sticking its hand in your pocket.
It is APPALLING that these Senators have the balls to try and control all of our lives. If they re-read the Constitution every day, we would not have to listen to this poop.
Someone would get up and say, “What the HELL are we doing here? Health care is the responsibility of each individual. We are the state’s representatives, and we have more important things to do. We must leave our employers, the people of the United States, in the freedom they deserve.”
“People are poor.”
The median world income is $2/day. If you are making more than half the people on the planet, you’re not poor. The USA poverty line is 20x that.
"...The Congressional Research Service released an analysis that found only one instance between 1999 and 2008 when Senate legislation failed after the chamber voted to end a so-called filibuster on a motion to debate a bill. That was a measure designed to protect gun manufacturers from lawsuits that was rejected in 2004.
When the Senate invoked cloture on a measure itself, it almost always proceeded to a final vote on the measure and passed it, CRS analysts wrote to Senator Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican who requested the study....."
Yep, they sure are --- and this Government's to blame for the high, punitave tax rates that are causing it!
Hey There my friend!!!!!!!!!!
Long time no see!!!!
Yes it is a very sad day for the USA!
My parents, who died in ‘94 and ‘96 wouldn’t recognize our country now!
Much Love sent your way.
That's precisely what it was, just ask Mary Landrieu.
Here's the thing: This is their last payoff. Come November 2010, these lying, thieving sons-a-bitches are all gonna get fired.
Theres no stopping this. And youll be amazed how easily it will pass the Senate. A year from now, the attitude will be We got socialized medicine, and the world didnt end! Those demotards were right. 2010 will not be a bloodbath, people forget. And the ugly stuff doesnt hit until 2013, remember. That is deliberately planned.
The GOP will be lucky to pick up twenty seats in the House, maybe even ten. The republic has been dying for decades; the ascension of Teleprompter Jesus is just the arrival of the minister for the funeral. Barry was right, the Nation Below Canada is no more exceptional than Greece or Turkey or Zimbabwe. The voters have seen to that.
Time to sack DC.
Astounding that we were told the uninsured are the poor victims how dare we not help them.
Now, the bill makes the uninsured CRIMINALS. Is there a need to say any more?
Arrogant Bastard Ale is a bit different...7.2% alcohol content; so some states sell it exclusively in liquor stores; whereas others sell it at regular beer outlets. It is commonly found in single 1 pt. 6 oz. bottles, but a new 'Oaked' version is now being sold in 6-packs. I couldn't think of a more appropriate adult beverage for this evening's health care vote than Arrogant Bastard. Says it all.
I am Atlas and I will shrug.
From your post to God’s ears!!
“100 million dollar prostitute”
Sounds good but democrats will get their clocks cleaned in 2010. I don’t think there will be any stopping it. Landrieu will be gone this time. I’m here in NJ where they threw Corzine out for a frankly rather blah republican candidate.
Obama is harder to beat only because 99% of blacks will turn out for him and even he will be endangered in 2012.
