Another 500,000 people today got the same idea me thinks.
You'll find gems mocking Republicans like Judd Gregg:
You can almost see Sen Judd Gregg's blood pressure rising on the Senate floor #senatedebate #hcr about 2 hours ago from web
There is nothing remotely good about any of this. There's nothing compassionate about any of this. Just before they detonate their political bombs -- which is what their votes against the wishes of the people they serve are -- they may as well shout "Death to freedom!" They may as well shout "Death to freedom!" as they cast their vote....
If we are going to be taxed “to death” for the first 4 yearss without ANY beneifts until the 5th year what is to keep us from voting the traitors out?
Cloture (3/5 majority) ends debate, and the next step is a final vote on passage. IIRC
Resume debate on the motion to proceed to HR3509, the legislative vehicle for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009.
At 8:00pm, the Senate will proceed to a roll call vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to H.R.2590.
The 8pm vote will be the only vote of the day.
Debate time will be controlled as follows:
Saturday, November 21
2-3pm Majority 3-4pm Republicans
7:30-7:45pm Republican Leader
7:45-8pm Majority Leader
RE: “How bout armed tea parties?”
Agree - sounds good! I’m off in a few minutes to attend MillionMedMarch — doctors against this scourage known as Obamacare.
Here in L.A. it will be at Federal Building Westwood at noon until about 2 — 11000 Wilshire Blvd - east of 405 freeway.
Check their website for other locations around the country.
A few more ‘marches’ can’t hurt as we undoubtedly must look forward to the biggest ‘march’ of all — the ‘millions of citizens’ march on DC when this commie takeover horror passes. It’s not about healthcare, it’s about CONTROL.
So if the Repubs hold together it is 40 votes plus Lieberman would make it 41. I cannot imagine the insurance companies in CT would be for this.
ACORN and/or martial law.
RE: “I’m off to buy more ammo...”
Another 500,000 people today got the same idea me thinks.”
You got that right — after the doctors march against this scourage at L.A.’s federal building at noon today, I am grabbing up more ammo as I really believe we may well need it.
I hope there are stats on how much is sold on a day like today with the vote and all — every time WE are screwed over, we retaliate by further arming ourselves. That story would make great headlines!
been looking for one of those myself. i’ll see you there.
I’m so confused.
Do they need 2 votes of 60 or not (to open and end debate)?
If so, is it the 2nd vote to end debate where Lieberman will make his stand and filibuster with us?
I'm afraid that you are correct with this.
If I hear "it's DOA" just one more time....
tis my understanding, limited as it may be.
They need another 60 votes to stop the debate after amendments are purposed which is true cloture .
Lieberman has stated he will filibuster the bill if the public option is still included in the bill.
