  • Are you talking about ObamaCare or Cap and Trade? So many messes--one needs to be more specific! LOL


    If you're talking about Cap & Trade, that only passed the House, it needs to pass the Senate before landing on Obama's desk--that's not SUPPOSED to happen until mid-September at the earliest.


    As for ObamaCare, it's still being debated in committee, and hasn't made it to the floor of the House--that's SUPPOSED to happen AFTER Labor Day! Then it has to pass the Senate to get to Obama's desk!


    Either way, the longer the delays the better for us--Obama's approval ratings are still falling.  People need to contact their reps and DEMAND they vote no!  They will be back in their hometowns/states until Labor Day--what better time to protest!!!

  • If Cap and Trade passes, it is supposed to take effect until 2011 (parts may not take effect until 2014+), and ObamaCare would not take effect for about 3 1/2+ years (2012-2015)
