LIVE Thread: Senate cloture vote. Guess the number of RINOs that vote to support "Dingy" Harry
C-span 2

Posted on 09/27/2013 6:59:01 AM PDT by ken5050

Senate just came into session. Happily, Dingy Harry is sparing us any commentary early on this morning, as is McConnell. Debate goes until 12:10, at which time there is 30 minutes reserved for majority and minority leaders , then the vote. Will there be any more GOP intramural fireworks on the senate floor?

Boehner is probably crying now that it’s back in his court.

No he's not.
Him and his cohorts never really intended to defund and get rid of rinocare any way.

They've had their plan b sitting there all along.
And once again they've made jackasses out of everyone.

I believe we are being prepared for a much bigger, more clear battle. Just my own sense of how the world is turning.

We are definitely in the very end times. This is a spiritual battle, good versus evil. I expect there to be a global thermonuclear war relatively soon.

My state is solidly Red. And the end result is Romney NEVER SHOULD HAVE EVEN GOTTEN THE NOMINATION. The whole primary was a joke to get Romney in so he could lose.

You are starting from a false premise.

I think they’ll push for the year delay. That will give them all cover in 2014 plus time to brainwash Americans that Obamacare is good for them.

You know that was not an option. You do know that. You are not stupid.

It was, what it was.

Bad as it was, it was either Romney or Obama winning each of the states.

If everyone did as those demanding that they refuse to vote for Romney, Obama wins every state.

Can you imagine Obama winning Texas?

And all the others?

I could not imagine it, and it would have been wrong.

But it would have happened everywhere, if that demand were met.

I know no such thing. We had options. Political insiders took those choices away from us.

If that is the best the GOP can do, then it needs to die and never rise again.

He’s got you fooled with his anti-Obamacare rhetoric. But he never said he would vote no. What he did say that he wants more Republicans in the Senate so that he doesn’t have to fight as a minority.

my understanding is this (anyone correct me if I am wrong)

the cloture vote is needed to end debate on the CR...once debate is ended no more amendments can be offered and Harry Reid can then strip the language to defund obamacare. In addition voting for cloture means that Harry only needs 51 votes to pass the CR ( without the defunding portion) instead of 2/3.

I’m a little slow, but I never understood cloture and how it works and how it affects me..

We wanted to hold the line here with 41 votes so that Reid could not go forward with his plan to allow ONLY ONE amendment to the House-passed Continuing Resolution Bill.

The "moderate" Republicans have a different "strategy", so they are voting to move on to Reid's amendment. Reid will strip the House bill of the Obamacare defunding and then the Senate will vote on the bill, with only simple majority needed for passage. The bill will then go back to the House.

The House will then either attempt to put the language back in or will vote on the Senate amended bill.

Alternatively, there are rumors circulating that Boehner will produce another bill which raises the debt ceiling with the condition of a one year delay in Obamacare.

I called RINO Roy Blunt’s DC office yesterday. What jerks! the gal that answered the phone was very very arrogant & quite a twit to me. She was very adamant that ole get-along Roy was going to vote FOR/along with dirty Harry. As I’d explained to her ‘why he should vote NO’, she was quite a hag. As for the RINO’s I think some of them either just don’t get it or just don’t care at all.. I even said, ‘he’s SUPPOSED to be there for US; to vote what WE wish him to vote’. She basically laughed me down & talked over me the whole time. I was one the phone with her for quite awhile. I even said to her, ‘NO MORE $$ to Blunt for re-election & would do my best to keep him from being re-elected’. She talked over me on that one too. After hanging up, I was completely blown away & ticked at the sheer audacity. Today, I shared w/RUSH on an email to let him know as well. Anyone out there: BLAST BLUNT!
