OBAMACARE: Senate Cloture Vote Saturday Evening at 8 PM

by Robert Farrow at the Baltimore Reporter


Sen. Reid just filed cloture on the motion to proceed to HR 3590, the Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act. Remember he is using HR 3590 as a ’shell’ to offer his 2,074 page health bill as a substitute amendment. The cloture vote on the motion to proceed will be Saturday evening at 8:00 pm. Remember Democrats need 60 votes to achieve cloture.

On Friday, the Senate will convene at 10:00 am and debate the merits of Sen. Reid’s 2,074 page bill until 11:00 pm on Friday evening.

On Saturday, the Senate will convene at 10:00 am continuing the debate leading up to the vote at 8:00 pm on cloture on the motion to proceed. Under the agreement, if cloture is invoked (they get 60 votes) all post-cloture time will be yielded back, the motion to proceed to the bill will be agreed to and the bill will be reported. Once the bill is reported Sen. Reid will be recognized to offer up his substitute amendment.”

845530,

I have no price. I have a backbone.
And I am not afraid to use it.

I decided to run for office and filed this past July 7, and hope to unseat our incumbent Barbara Mikulski precisely because of these types of events.

I am sick of incumbency and the corruption they seem to love.

Call me crazy, but I’ve been to a few Tea Parties and a Town Hall – because they refuse to listen to us – my answer is:

I want your job, and you out of it.
