When the Dems called the bill up for a voice vote. Demint was only one on the floor.
They wanted to give him only 4 mins to get all the Reps in there to vote. The hill link explains it better then I can.

  • INTERESTING..... So glad that some certain liberals on CM were crying foul on the Republicans... What was going on? POLITICIANS PLAYING POLITICS... Something BOTH sides are guilty of... Where ohh where are RNnurse, Anouck, Stacymom, mommom2000, MTM, sweet-a-kins, etc????? Hey ladies~ Looks like the R's are not the ONLY "Dirty Bastards" in your book, eh?!?  Will you hold them accountable?  ALAS, That is between you and your conscience who you hold accountable and who gets a free pass, isn't it...

  • This is my surprised face. No, not really.

    "Democrats — on short notice — Wednesday tried to grant Obama’s commission subpoena power by unanimous consent and without a roll call vote.

    But Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who happened to be on the Senate floor at the time, was forced to object on behalf of the Republican caucus."

    It's politics as usual...

  • Of course it is Quinn. The libs prefer to believe propaganda. If they ignore it then it isn't true.

  • Wow.. The more I research this, it turns out the GOP wanted to READ THE BILL FIRST before they voted on it.... Who would have thought??? Elected officials DOING their job before they RUSH TO VOTE.... So interesting..... ;o)

  • A few of the things I have learned in my 81 years. If a liberal tells you anything, always check it out to see if it is true or not. Also check it out to see if they have added there own opinion to it, or if they have added things to make it worse then it is.
