Information has been circulating about how the U.S. House of Representatives may use a motion to reconsider on Cap and Trade, thus allowing members to change their votes. This has now been confirmed to be inaccurate. The House vote is final, and Cap and Trade must be stopped in the U.S. Senate.

No matter how many times a bill fails, they can always vote again. (think bank bailouts) Once it passes, that's it. It only has to pass once.

According to a post on the Daily Paul website, C-SPAN was incorrect when it stated that House members had until July 2nd to change their vote on HR 2454, also known as the American Clean Energy and Security Act. A contributor to the site called Ron Paul’s office to confirm the deadline and was told the vote was final — once the House gavels the vote, it is final.
Perhaps instead of just accepting this hearsay, we should make absolutely sure.
