Skip to comments.LIVE Thread: Senate cloture vote. Guess the number of RINOs that vote to support "Dingy" Harry
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?
Yep.....we will lose this round because of our RINO traitors, just like Benedict Arnold in the revolutionary war!!! But, friends, we have won the ideas war handily with the American people. Before this day is out, over 2,000,000 Americans will have signed and endorsed the Lee/Cruz “Defund Obamacare” Petition, the House has yet to fire its next move and the whole Obamabot machine is in turmoil, regardless of what the Obamabot media tell you!!! Ted Cruz will get a majority of the US Senate Republicans voting with him, which means, McConnell has no effectvity as the Pubbie Senate leader and ditto for John Cornyn!!!
I remind you of a bit of history. In january, 1781, George Washington was stuck in the north and the entire south was sliding off to the British Army. Charleston was wiped out and burned, almost to the ground!!! So....Washington sent General Nathanial Greene and Lt. General, Daniel Morgan south to the western part of South Carolina to, in a last ditch effort to slow or defeat the British forces. Greene was a brillant QuarterMaster, who almost single-handily kept Washington’s army fed, clothed and armed. He had a very bad limp with one his legs from childhood and dragged it behind him, so much that he could not march properly. But.....Washington came to think so highly of Greene, that he told congress, if he got killed or injured, that they should replace him, using Nathanial Greene.
Daniel Morgan was a mean, determined backwoods fighter who was a brawler,
a gambler, a womanizer and man that enjoyed his boose!!! But....he had a magnificent, brilliant strategic mind on the battle field. And....his men, down to the last man, would die for him!!!
Bottom line.....Greene split his forces, he going north into North Carolina, and Morgan going south, with 700 militia and regulars. Hence, the now famous battle at “The Cow Pens” in the western fields of South Carolina where Morgan devastated the best the British could offer. Greene did not have the same result, but he, with brillant attack plans, tied the British up in knots. These two encounters were the turning point for Washington who quickly went on to win the Revolutionary war with the aid of the Frencj army and navy in Virginia!!!
Point of order: Victory comes to those who believe, those who fight, those who never give up their dreams of freedom, liberty and opportunity, ever. So....keep that mojo burning, folks....and if you need an attention getter to keep you fired up, go see “Braveheart” or, “The Outlaw Josey Wales”!!! “Our”
revolution is underway thanks to the gang of four, Cruz, Lee, Paul & Rubio!!! Onward!!! WWW.DONTFUNDOBAMACARE.COM
There really is a Senator Crapo?
Portman, you fooling nobody
Kelly Ayotte is a huge disappointment. She was good for a year and now is a traitor.
Son of a bitch...
Calling roll. Are they moving straight to the final vote?
What is happening now? Is Harry striping the defund language?
Only 19 oppose ObamaCare
See post #34 at that link
Cloture is a vote to end debate on a bill and proceed to a vote on the bill. It requires 60 votes to reach cloture. If 41 or more senators vote against cloture the bill does not get voted on. Once cloture is reached, the vote on the bill can be held but that vote only requires a simple majority and then the bill passes. In essence, a vote for cloture ensures that the bill will pass. Watch for Republicans who voted for cloture but then vote against the bill take to the airways to proclaim that they voted against Obamacare - they will be liars.
New new clerk has a voice like a “valley girl”
And to think he could have voted No. He’s more honest than I thought.
NO’s - the Good Guys - Those Who Listened!
Hey, Cruz got almost half of the GOP caucus on his side. Now the light has shined on all these cockroaches for everyone to see.
Because that is what the respective party in that state wants.
Who didn’t vote?
What are they voting on now..?
Both of my guys voted NO. I can put away the pinking shears.
I believe they are now voting on stripping all amendments.
No doubt it’s the ultimate battle of good vs. evil.
I find it oddly comforting, knowing that forces far greater than any of us is at play.
After the last 6 years I have come to the hard realization that nothing I do will move evil over to good. I no longer bother trying, instead I find more enjoyment from sticking their filth right back at them, I refuse to be covered in darkness with their lies.
Town halls have become quite entertaining as of late.
I used to go in with my info, all ready to shed some light. Now, I sit back and listen, waiting for the perfect opening to take their well rehearsed lies and toss it back at them.
If you want the conservative base to stay home in droves... Keep propping up RINO’s on your Party ticket.
That simple. McCain? Romney? Dole?
\Heck, even Bush wasn’t nearly as conservative as he’s been painted to be. His lack of rolling back Clinton and Bush Sr. EO’s on things like the Eastern bloc weapons import ban and DRMO sales of surplus ammo components would have been EASY for him to do. Medicare Part D? PATRIOT Act?
We’ve HAD choices. Without the Party pushing a real candidate though, those choices will always be long shots compared to the Insider and MSM “favorite”.
And, the next time FReepers start weighing on how wonderful and patriotic their mormon neighbors are, remember Harry Reid, who has been outed on this thread as a common criminal, is a mormon in good standing. RomneyCare brought us ObamaCare!
What the final Republican Tally?
Did Cruz get a majority of Republicans?
Oh well, I can’t count.... 19
Thank Liz Cheney for Enzi’s NO vote..
I loked it up.It says to end it.I guess tat means not vote on amendments to it.
It was a beautiful 21 hours. Politics felt clean and for the first time in a long time, I knew that I was being represented.
NO..amendments were all withdrawn..
Roll call for Final.
Bull, Enzi is a solid conservative, I hope Liz goes down in flames.
Final was 19 out of 46. Not even half of the GOP.
I hink they got 19 Republican votes no.
From now on Reid and Pelosi will be refer to Obamacare as bipartisan. They will throw every criticism back in their faces - well it was Bipartisan!
Hope no Pub was planning on running a platform against Obamacare. No can do now. Jerks.
I believe Rubio voted NO
Nope, didn’t see that coming. (sarc)
I would say that Cruz did get 100% of the real Republican vote. The rest are just posers.
Right. Roll call for that vote?
So 60 votes to cut off debate and 51 to pass it? I think I understand it. What I don’t understand are the folks with (R)s after their names defying the will of the electorate. It is blatant “ I know you voted for me and I know you don’t want obamacare, but I’m voting for it anyway” .
I guess we need to burn up the Speaker’s phone line..
This is the establishment circling the wagons, desparately trying to hold onto power before Rome burns.
Oops read it wrong. So disgusted right now. I truly thought there would be more noes than there were. All that calling.... yielded few results.
Republican Civil War.
Take That Hill!!!!
They truly do not care what the people think
the funding for ObamaCare
“”see...told ya so””
It evolved as a way for Statists of both parties to have the advantage over Constitutional loving, Liberty loving Americans.
It's the scourge of the political parties --- the arrogant political class.
Open primaries stack the deck against limited government candidates.
Final vote coming up.
Thanks much for the clarification, FRiend.
