At the close of Rush Limbaugh's show, he remarked that Pelosi might delay the vote on Cap & Trade since they're 12 votes short with 17 undecided.

Does anyone know anything more about this? Like, is it true and who the undecideds are.

The MSM is too busy with MJ to bother about legislation right now, so I haven't been able to find out anything else.

I called my rep and let him know that if he votes for this - that I and at least 20 other people right now are prepared to vote against him in the coming election - and that we would actively start seeking MORE people to opose him.

Is he a Democrat?

I have heard they need at least 7 republicans. I'm sure they will get them. Just promise them a piece of candy or a pat on the back from Barak.

I called mine as well. Twice, in two different voices. The lady that picked up wouldn't tell me if he was voting yea or nay, but he's a Democrat - I'm pretty sure I can guess. :rolleyes:

If anyone wants to do more against this crap and tax bill, Newt Gingrich has made a plug for this petition:

Rush talked specifically about two of my reps. I used to live under Goodlatte but now I'm under the Periello fella.
A caller told Rush that Periello origninally wanted to vote NO, but was waiting to see how things went and would probably vote YES. WTFreak? Are any of thes guys principled anymore. :(


And... Milly's absolutely right on! I've noticed how the entire Establishment media has been covering things like Michael Jackson's and Farrah's death ad nauseum...and that's all well and good....but notice how Congress is trying to slip through one of the single most important tax bills under the American peoples noses while we scarf popcorn and watch Beat it videos all day long? The media is all to willing to ignore it. Disgusting. They are always AWOL on things of real substance.

We can't afford to be complacent. Everyone needs to call and also spread the word to others to contact their senator.

Politicians are weasles. They need our pressure.

I had put a thread in politics, asking for help with the house. Let's hit it big when it gets to the senate and not just sit there waiting for the other person to do their part.

Carl Levins website says the Senate won't be in session until July 6th. So I don't think this bill is going anywhere quick. Could be good, could be bad. Plenty of time to dig up more crap on it, but also plenty of time to let people forget about it as well.

Mentioned on Hot Air.

Update: A good point from Goldfarb while we’re busy obsessing over the eight GOP turncoats: What about the 50 Democrats (http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2009/06/what_does_tonights_vote_mean.asp) who voted no? They’ve earned the ire of liberals needlessly, given that the bill’s destined for likely death in the Senate.

Also on one of our turncoats.

Update: If you’re looking for a lightning rod among the elite eight, Mark Kirk is probably the one. He’s considering (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1208/16505.html) running for Obama’s old Senate seat next year. Memo to Kirk: Reconsider.

I contacted Senator Levin. Made it very clear where I stood on this, and drove the point home that the projected cost increases brought about by this bill will probably drive my mother, and grandparents, out of their houses.

Keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

I'll wager that those dems represent conservative districts.

i'd say that's a fair assumption. Never a good idea to support something a majority of your constituents don't support.

Here in MS all but one Representative voted NAY... that was a Democrat... but the other two Democrats did vote NAY.(One of those was my Rep. thank god he voted NAY) The other one is a Republican... of course he voted NAY. So I would say as a whole Mississippi did its job.

Read the book "Green Hell: How Environmentalist Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them"

Very interesting

The guy who wrote it also has a blog, here's the link.
