How does a vote get shouted down? Do they only do voice votes in Texas? Where was security to get the chanters out of the chamber?
Democratic Screamers were in the observers gallery. Security did not remove them.
I was so pissed as I watched the whole debacle live. I couldn’t believe my eyes when it was quite evident that the Dem senators tried every move to delay the vote. And I was yelling at the idiot Repubs to watch the clock. Totally played.
The clown Dewhurst(sp?) tried to show that he was impartial and gave the Dems too many unwarranted points of order. I honestly think they (the Senate Repubs) didn’t want to pass this bill because Dewhurst is running to the left of Perry and wants to show he’s a moderate. What a maroon.
