rancher89
11-19-2009, 03:51 PM
The wait is due to "some members" (according to Barney) felt they had not had sufficient feedback from their constituents to make an informed vote on 1207.

I'd like to know WHO those members are.....evil grin

I can't figure out what's going on. Anybody know? Obviously RP and Grayson wouldn't vote differently so that wasn't the amendment we're concerned with.

No, it was RP's amendment. At least that's what Frank said at the beginning.

"The gentleman from Texas's amendment over Watt's amendment" or something similar.

They definitely did not make that very clear, I thought they were voting on the Paul-Grayson amendment and then at the end Frank said that the Paul amendment of the Watt amendment passed or something very close to that???

And then wrapped things up and adjourned in like 5 seconds - what the hell?

It was a Roll Call vote to replace the Watt Amendment to HR 1207 with Ron Paul/Alan Grayson's amendment. It passed.

Now we just have to wait for the Thanksgiving recess, so that when they return, they will vote on HR 1207 in Committee.

And then hopefully, on the Floor of the House!

So what happens now?

We wait for over a year and a half for it to arrive in the Senate after passing the House. During that time the Senate will fail to achieve the needed votes, and this time and effort will be for naught. (Just kidding! I have faith that it will pass the Senate, and the House is assured....but the Presidency....)

I think as Ron Paul does, by the time this passes, or comes to Obama's desk that the US will be in the deepest shit imaginable. At that point we need to be on cue with our message, and rebut everything the Statists try to fling out.
