Sources inside the Senate tell me that the Republican Conference is scared to death of the tactics of Senators Lee, Cruz and Paul that it is supposedly putting them in a tough spot.
Several of the Republicans are using the Manchin-Toomey compromise plan as an excuse to cave on the gun filibuster. They claim that Senators Lee, Cruz, and Paul are running ahead of the conference in their insistence on a filibuster.
What they fail to see is that the cloture vote is the vote to stop the gun legislation from passage.
Several Republican Senators intend to vote against the filibuster, but then vote against the overall bill. This is too clever by half. The GOP does not control the Senate as the GOP is want to say every time they dont want to fight.
Their only power to block a gun control bill is to unite and filibuster.
Voting for cloture is voting for the gun control bill because, again, as the GOP reminds us, they are not in the majority. The only way to stop it is to filibuster.
There’s been way too many decades of the GOP caving in to the wishes of the Democrats, and it’s, even, worse with TRUE conservatives caving in to the wishes of the left from BOTH MAJOR U.S. POLITICAL PARTIES!
Pussy farts...all of them!
I think mccain is up for re-election in 2016. I wonder if Palin will endorse and campaign for him again.
If they enforce the law that crazy people can’t own guns, mccain needs to go ahead and turn his in now. He is insane.
Both party’s ‘faithful’ need to be decimated by a legitimate third party that’s definitely to the far right of this sickening political spectrum. Either we take this nation back or allow it to sink to the bottom fettered by the leftists and idiots comprising the minorities that are strangling America.

Because the Republican party is set up as a false opposition
to help combat and derail any attempt to stop the communist takeover of our country. They are fakes and frauds in the
same vein as Obama. The tell is the way they attack the
conservative members of their own party. You know, “Hobbits”.
It has to be the aura of Satan that permeates the halls and chambers of Congress.
It is imperative that Congress’ budgets be slashed. Staffers must go and these paneled offices must be shared.
Congress is one sickening assemblage of morons and communist/socialists/moderates.
We are seeing the separation of the RINO's from the herd. We are seeing who is there to serve their constituents and who is there to serve the establishment.
“Voting has become nearly pointless.”
Considering that Mickey and Minnie Mouse vote on a regular basis, you might be right.
“If they enforce the law that crazy people can’t own guns...”
...and the Progressives get to define “crazy”.
No names, no credibility
That’s it! Satan rules there, but people won’t say so.
No, most Dems and GOP people would rather see total destruction so long as their party prevails.
I don't, wonder that is. Palin will once again fly her cheer-leading ass back down here to Arizona and many foolish FReepers will once again give her a pass, while posting pics of her in running suits giving an imaginary toast with Reagan. Then they'll sit back comfortably in their RINO afterglow and vote for the next McCain/Romney.
