This was just the amendments. The bill can come to the floor anytime because of some procedural maneuvering by Harry Reid.

What irks me is Obama is saying that 90% of Americans wanted this to pass and that the representatives didn't vote the way their constituents wanted. He is a liar. I say that most reps voted exactly the way their people wanted them too. Obama is a sickening man in my opinion. Thank God most reps weren't intimidated by the leftwing scum and their goons in the media.

Yeah. I'm not sure what that type of rhetoric is suppose to accomplish. Does he think he's changing peoples mind by yapping about what 'other people' supposedly think? It makes no sense. I think all it does is destroy credibility with people who might actually be willing to compromise in a real way.

Another example is 57% of Americans support decriminalizing marijuana at the federal level. 3% of congress persons are willing to do so. That's the word from the grapevine anyway.
