    RocketMan,

    Perhaps his staffer couldn't have cared less. It's also possible that his staffer is just so tired of all the calls that his Senator is going to get an earfull about just how pissed off people are about his vote.

    Reed is saying that the underlying bill is flawed and should be voted down.

    Now Craig is saying that they have a responsibility to pass this bill... but it is so downleaden with crud that they should vote it down.. they're going to vote.


    NOW

    Reconsider the tabling? Wonder why?

    Also a "Q": Can Craig (or whomever) withdraw S. 1805?

    If so would it die or go back to the original S. 659

    Sorry I missed the ongoing commentary today. I got a nasty virus that kicked in last night, I will spare you the gory details, but it was not fun. :barf: :uhoh:

    I am really angry and disappointed that the AWB amdmt. passed. Looks like I made it in time for the final vote.

    WAY TO GO CRAIG! He just said we should vote it down.

    Reed is up repeating the same thing he's been saying for days, 1805 will give gun mfgs a free pass to be irresponsible, blah blah. Calls for defeat of 1805.

    Craig is up, saying House passed clean 1805. Says Bush asked for clean bill. Says bill is no longer clean, citing AWB, gun show stuff, trigger locks. Doesn't believe we should go there. He is now told it would never even get to conference. It was to be a substantial move in tort reform, calling for individual responsibility. 1805 was clear and clean. But I now believe it is so dramatically wounded that it should not pass. I urge for no votes.

    Like I said last week, when the Cloture vote had so many Democrats vote for it, the fix was in to kill this bill by amending it to death.

    The bill will not pass in the Senate, and both Republican traitors and Democrats will get what they want.

    Remember the fix was in since last week -- all the rest is just for show.

    LOL! This forum is getting hammered right now! Almost 500 replies in one day.

    The classical music is played during a long period of inactivity like a qurom call.

    They just started reading the bill again and will do a final vote in a few minutes.

    Craig is calling for the bill to be killed. GOOD GOING! Remember that there's still s. 659 in the Senate still that can acted upon. There's no huge emergency here at the moment, nothing worth passing the AWB for.

    Even if this bill dies, remember how everyone voted regarding the AWB extension. And remember that they proved they HAVE THE VOTES TO RENEW IT between now and September.

    Roll call vote now...

    My guess is that s. 1805 goes down in a big way. Dems don't like the basic bill, Republicans don't like all the Amendments. Voting now...

    does anyone have a list of the vote on AWB renewal for another 10 years. or if anyone knows what iowa senators voted I would appreciate it.

    hope this thing dies now.

    yeah they are finishing up the roll call now and voting, it will be announced in a minute or two

    but this one isnt the scary one

    the scary one is the one they are bound to introduce between now and september and they just showed they have the backing to pass it...

    i think we can only rely on the house to go so far before accepting anti legislation and who knows what bush will do

    Voting right now... to kill the amendment-damaged Senate Bill S1805.

    Couldn't we have Senators Feinstein, Schumer, Kennedy, Klinton, Boxer, Levin, and a few others make a visit to Iraq on July 1, 2004 after Iraq transfer of power, and we can have Senate Bill S659 be voted on then. Of course, it would be unfortunate if the military just says that its too dangerous to have the Iraq contigent hop on a military transport, but a slow aircraft carrier trip would be juuuuust fine. :D
