I guess they will have to keep voting until it passes. They don’t have enough bribes yet.

My thought exactly ... My guess is the stooge Levin show trial didn't work out right.

They better stop doing this.

Everytime they vote there are more "no" votes. They're losing momentum, not gaining.

Several republican votes are they if Reid agreed to a minimal compromise.

________________________________________

The vote is to bring the bill to the floor not to pass it.

Every time Reid throws it out and it gets thrown back he and his boss at 1600 can talk again about the nasty GOP refusing to take on Wall Street. That's the tactic.

We need to brand this a “bailout bill” and keep hammering that we are saying “NO” to more democrat bailouts.

Why is the story that Glenn Beck detailed this week not plastered all over every front page in America??

Obama/Gore/Goldman Sachs are getting ready to impose a $10 TRILLION dollar climate tax on America through the Chicago Climate Exhange (CCX) and Cap&Tax.

Goldman, Gore and others in Obummer’s admin are potentially going to reap 100’s of billions of dollars in profits on this scheme.

Goldman is happily playing their part as the pinata so that the Dems can use them to push through financial reform... then Goldman gets to benefit from Cap and Tax.

It’s all a game... and American citizens will be the losing team.

Watch this clip from Beck. (If you are truly limited on time, forward to 14 minutes, although 7:45 - 8:40 is very important too):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQitjq2CXS0

The video ends before he unveils the “middle” guy who facilitated the funding/founding of the Chicago Climate Exchange.

Gee, who could be from Chicago AND heavily involved with Goldman Sachs?? Hint, he also goes by the name Barry.

Don’t fall for the “financial reform hearings” circus. It’s all just a show.

As Beck always says, “watch the other hand”... that is where the real heist is taking place!

Our entire country is getting ready to be robbed if Cap and Tax passes.

Watch Beck for the rest of the week... he honestly believes there is a good chance that people will go to jail based on what he is going to expose. Fox News 5:00 Eastern Time.

Democrats are offering another government takeover. Americans don’t like that. They want Washington to work on creating jobs and reducing the debt. Check out this Senate Republican video:

I would guess that it is in the last 15 - 20 minutes of the show yesterday 4/27... right after he does the bit with the buckets of money... then goes to commercial, then comes back and hints at what he will be exposing later this week.

I am going to be glued to my TV!

NOTHING will stop the Progressive’s train from reaching it’s destination. NOTHING. Health care (and education) “reform”. Financial “reform”. Cap and Tax. Amnesty.

The indictment of Goldman Sachs is as deceptive as the “financial reform” bill that President Obama and the liberals are pushing on Capitol Hill, says Zubi Diamond, author of the blockbuster book, Wizards of Wall Street. Diamond is warning legislators not to fall for the Obama Administration’s claim that the legislation somehow punishes Wall Street for bad financial practices.

Everyone needs to read Zubi Diamonds book, The Wizards of Wall Street.

http://www.amazon.com/Wizards-Wall-Street-Washington-Economic/dp/1448650046

Description:

“Corruption in Washington DC and on Wall Street joined at the hip has affected your finances and your children’s future; it is about the complete erosion of representative government that ceded the power of policy writing and regulation of our banking and financial markets to a lobbying company for the hedge fund short sellers whose greed for power and profit led them to subvert our capitalist system economy, their dirty malicious scandalous criminal maneuvers resulted in the collapse of the economy, the lending freeze, the stock market crash, and the looting of America in excess of $11 trillion dollars; it was a perfect crime until now, the truth and their secrets revealed in this book. The scam orchestrated by the wizards of Wall Street and sanctioned by their Washington DC lap dogs; the scam that elected Barack Obama, Exposed. Who did it and how? Details and names revealed; Architects of the crisis. The book offers the solution for a complete and permanent recovery from the crisis.”

What makes you think the Senate Republicans can repeal this? They can’t even articulate the mess in this bill and are just waiting for a few RINO’s to surrender. While Reid throws around “anti-American” insults most senate Republicans seem to be hiding under a rock.

Senate Republicans need to hit back hard against all the sewage and nepotism the dims and Wall Street have created. Threaten Congressional investigations next year. Call out specific dim senators and their dates with Wall Street sugar daddies, etc. Run TV ads about Dodd’s history etc., etc.

No need to repeal anything if they can block it first.

They cannot do any more then uniformly as a body vote against this, which they have done.

Vote No on everything. Then after November 2, 2010, start repealing everything. Then after November, 2012, start dismantling the federal government except for the Military and essential services, roads, grid, etc. "The primary purpose of the Federal Government is to provide for the National Defense." What happened?

I agree...however how much of this is political show for both sides is questionable as far as I am concerned.....if it is a matter of who gets the bucks... this vote will continue till they can get it on the floor for a vote....expect alot of back room deals are going down...the republicans will look like they held out to prevent the vote...but I do question if this all isn’t just washingtons two step.

Fox Business just announced that the GOP will vote in their caucus at 4:30pm to allow a floor debate on the financial reform bill if the “progress” made between Dodd and Shelby is included in the bill.

All it takes is 51 votes to change the Senate rules so that you don't need 60 votes to pass certain bills.

Reid gets tired of the way the game is being played and all he has to do is change the rules.
