this goes nowhere in the House

Don't bet on that. There are enough RINOs in the house for the rats to carry the day.

Does that mean I can’t give Clint Jr my guns unless he goes through a background check?

You've got to count on Boehner (!!!) to keep it off the floor.

long shot, I suppose.

saw something earlier that he said the idea for sequester cuts weren't really Obamas idea

Regardless, this is the rope-a-dope, the good-cop to Feinswine’s bad cop routine.

This is the real deal. The other was just for show IMO. They knew it would never go anywhere.

This is the one they really want to shove down our throats.

Agreed. This will not make it out of the senate. I doubt if it will even get 50 votes.

GOOD! Now each and every Democrat who votes for this bill will have a very difficult time winning in 2014.

Let the voting record show their treason to the Constitution.

Obama must have weighed in. Too bad Harry ....you lose....and you will NEVER get your funding requests passed in the House.

IDJIT! Buahahahahahahaha!

The votes for this will be good data for those who ultimately bring justice.

Now they need to put hairy in the position that he has to vote yes on it. Make him vote for this bill so his constituents will vote him out of office in his next election. His high rating with the NRA will be history and so will his senate career. The house will not pass this bill so we can kill the bill and make hairy history all at the same time. I like a happy ending.

How come the Dem leadership always flip-flops in the leftward direction, while ours... does too?

If a gun control bill makes it to the floor of the House, it will almost certainly pass. All 201 Democrats will vote for it...and, if as few as 17 lily-livered, yellow bellied RINOs vote for it, it becomes law.

You've got to count on Boehner (!!!) to keep it off the floor.


We're doomed.
