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.
We’re all outlaws now. F’em.
No there isn't, and no I won't.
I'll admit I have days when I think "just how %^*%$#@!!!! stupid were the American people to elect Obama????" and get thoroughly depressed about the state of our country and where it's headed.
Then I have days like today where I see Obama's "popularity" has dropped below 50%, 65% of American's think Tax Cuts and less government spending are the way out of this
recession depression and my faith in the intelligence of the American people is renewed - even if ever so slightly.
Chin up, we win in the end.
From her lips to our ears today ""300 Million dollar" prostitute
not after they push through amnesty
With all due respect to my Lord and Savior, He already knows.
You and I need to get the word out to everyone else. :-)
I couldn't possibly agree with you more. Which is precisely why I say throw them all out. Every last one.
Landrieu, the 100 million dollar baby.
Brother, if this govt isnt corrupt I dont know what it is.
Disgusting and they don’t even try to hide it and people are doing nothing. I think the Republic is long gone.
My point was that there will always be people on each end of any spectrum of wealth measurement. If there is a squirrel with 10 nuts, and one with 6 nuts, there is a “rich” squirrel and a “poor” squirrel.
There will always be “poor” people because words are used to describe how people match up financially. There is NO WAY to make sure we all have the same. Even pure Communism needs a ruling party, outside the system, to “divvy” it all up among the suckers underneath.
So “poor people,” people with less resources than others, will have LESS STUFF than others. They will struggle to meet their basic needs.
People who have more always wish to help those who have less, especially by “teaching them to fish” and demonstrating how to become self-sufficient. People who are not poor ALWAYS wish to help the truly helpless.
None of these natural facts of life have any business being controlled by any body of governmental representatives.
Who is John Galt?
Based on what? All analysis assuming continuing hostility to Democrats and tilt towards Republicans still shows we have no way to win back the Senate next year.
She votes yes, her constituents do nothing. That’s the problem. They should be protesting in the streets, just like they did in Iran. But they won’t.
“Time to sack DC.”
I suggest hand delivery of our taxes on April 15th. ALL OF US.
check later, thanks for the info!
If they wouldn't get off their fat, lazy, gubbermint-cheese eating asses to get out of the way of a hurricane with 3 days notice, what makes you think they'll get off their fat, lazy, gubbermint-cheese eating asses to protest the free health care they think they're about to get?
Not paying them at all would be a better option, don't you think? "National Tax Revolt - April 15th: Revenge Of The Taxpayers."
I did...on November 4, 2008.
Outside that, I am considering other countries. I will not submit any further to Gov’t servitude.
I’m with you. This crap that we can vote them out is a pipe dream. If this passes, we are out of here. I’m glad we began to make plans when he was elected. It will be fast and easy to make the move.
Maybe Obama is going to pay for this from his stash. Isn't this country just wonderful to do that for all those that are going to swell our prison population to unimaginable numbers? /s
