(Excerpt) Read more at c-span.org ...
Rep. Waxman (D-pig snout, CA) just intdroduced his bill....without disclosing another 300 pages and last minute admendments who, God knows what, is included.
Anyways....we are in for a helluv an afternoon, with our Constitutional Republic at stake at the worst, and our capitalist, free market way of life at the best.
How about people posting a nose count here.
My rep Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) is a NO VOTE.
Marsha Blackburn is voting NO!
For everyone trying to get through to your Reps DC office only to encounter a busy signal...
All these folks have local offices scattered around their district - usually at least one in the largest city/town. Search the phone book or web phonebook yellow pages under the Reps name.
You can also get the local district office number and address off the Reps web page (they all have one).
One final obaservation... E-mail is great, but I feel its not nearly as effective as a phone call. From a phone call, the staffer can hear your passion and understand just how important you consider this to be. Plus - they understand its not spam or a robo-fax.
Looks like Vic Snyder (D)-2nd District, AR is the only one of our Congress Critters to NOT vote no (he’s still debating it says staff) ...which means that he will do whatever Nancy says.....
Markey from Mass. lying through his teeth right now. Wow work for all, lots of jobs, electric cars, smart grid. GO TO HELL!
We need to start working the Seante side. The house wouldn’t be putting this to a vote unless they knew they had enough. Might be close, but will most likely pass. Only chance to head it off is in the Senate.
My understanding is that the entire Alabama delegation will be voting NO - with the possible exception of Rep. Artur Davis. I have called his DC office and local office and respectfully begged he vote No.
Contact your Reps by email and call their office toll free:
Rush said Minnik (D-ID) was on the fence. Current info calling his DC office about an hour ago is that he will be voting NO.
Rhetorical joke: How do you tell when a liberal democrat is lying?
I say pour it on.
All it takes is a phone call.
A defeat today would be a huge momentum killer against the Obamanazi.
As someone pointed out a couple of weeks ago, Waxman, Markey, Algore and the Dems are telling us that if we will only tolerate their raising our taxes AND our cost of living, they will be able to control the weather. And the entire MSM believes them.
This is insane....1200 page bills....and they are getting passed WITHOUT our true representation.
The hubris of these scumbags.
THEY COULDN’T POUR PISS OUT OF A BOOT IF THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE PRINTED ON THE HEEL.
“Devastates Rural America: According to the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the monthly residential electricity bills in 25 states will increase 15 to 28 percent for every $20/ton of carbon dioxide allowances. Rural households spend 58% more on fuel than urban residents as a percentage of their income. The Heritage foundation estimates farm income will drop by $50 billion by 2035.”
From the Heritage Foundation
Dennis Moore-D, KS will not admit that he is going to vote Yes. I’ve called his office several times. The 4 other KS Reps are R’s and Nay votes.
Already have a live thread going:
It’ll be great when Obama goes into panic mode and blames the American people for not “believing in the future” - what a turd.
