FoxNews Reorts: Breaking News Third Senate Test Vote on Financial Overhaul Bill Fails 56-42
I guess they will have to keep voting until it passes. They don’t have enough bribes yet.
I wonder how they feel about their procedural tricks now.
The previous vote was 57-41.
My thought exactly ... My guess is the stooge Levin show trial didn't work out right.
Everytime they vote there are more "no" votes. They're losing momentum, not gaining.
Harry Reid being totally out of control.
They might need to roll Byrd out from the freezer.
beating a dead horse..
Several republican votes are they if Reid agreed to a minimal compromise.
Everytime they vote there are more “no” votes.
Look again, they dropped 1 vote.
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.
Harry has to vote against it in order to bring it to a vote every day.
Just watch. As soon as one RINO defects, Ben Nelson will become a DemocRAT again.
We need to brand this a “bailout bill” and keep hammering that we are saying “NO” to more democrat bailouts.
My guess is the stooge Levin show trial didn’t work out right.
Got that straight! All it managed to do was to touch off a national debate about scatalogical expletives.
_1 +1 ? Who switched?
Harry Reid is a slow learner.
How many “test votes” do they get?
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 100s 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.
Its 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):
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.
Dont fall for the financial reform hearings circus. Its 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.
Oh yeah, really? When did he say this? I just happened to catch his Monday show and it was excellent.
Its all going to be repealed anyway.
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:
Senate Republican Conference
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 “no” votes went from 41 to 42.
....That’s Bi-partisant vote against it.........
Senator Levin must be very disappointed.....he was beating up Lloyd Blankfein so good...into the late hours on national TeeVee....
One, two, three strikes YOU’RE OUT.
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.
“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.
Isn’t it getting worse with each vote? Jeepers. These idiots don’t give up. I guess when you get paid that much for working only part time, might as well....
Levin is a complete moron, comparing synthetic cdo’s to a crappy car. This is not grandma’s money they are selling cdo’s too, they are extremely sophiticated investors.I hate that I have to stick up for Goldman but this is bs.
McCain was pathetic too yesterday-all the more reason to send him packing.
These old senators have no clue on how the world works anymore, especially the economy and financial industry.
So can we put a fork in it now? As in done?
what a waste of time for elected paid officials
move on it failed, now just wait till the election when these kind of votes will be even more in favour of the GOP
All their time is actually wasted and they get way over paid for working part time.
Caught it, thanks. Interesting.
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.
McCain looked old, confused, and asked stupid questions. As for Blankfein, his picture appears next to the dictionary definition for oleagenous.
So, they will up the bribes until they ge tthe votes. We have a completely corrupt government.
Possibly, but as of now, they're going in the wrong direction.
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.
Reid gets tired of the way the game is being played and all he has to do is change the rules.
