Now that we've had the hearing for HR1207 in the house maybe some of you that are following this can share what comes next.

Inquiring minds want to know...

I am more concerned with what is NOT happening.
I was hopeful for public debate. examining the issues. Education.

I did not expect anything more, but it seems there is a quiet space where there should be discussion. :(

I think they are trying to follow procedure so not to upset party leaders, infact I have inside information that they are minding their p's and q's very carefully so not to disrupt the karma they have built already and have this move forwad smoothly but not in a pushy manner.

The worst thing that could happen is this goes to the floor for a vote after a huge media debacle threatens to change the minds of co-sponsors who then get threatened by corporate and lobby interests to move away from the legislation.

We want this to pass quietly and cleanly. Then when the GAO performs an audit and a problem is identified that is when we raise hell and get the fed to fall.
