Go to their websites below, courtesy of Dog2000tj. Keep in mind that they will not disclose everything in their proposals, certainly not the things we would protest about the most loudly. Be patient. In the meantime keep aware of the conversation. It will help you to better be able to debate the subject as it is evolving.
Did Dog answer well enough for you Rat? (Thanks for providing the links Dog!)
As I originally said, nothing has been introduced yet. Feinstein said she will introduce it next session so you have to look at her website. If and when she introduces it you can follow it from there here- http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/legislative/g_three_sections_with_teasers/legislative_home.htm
Obama cannot introduce anything. It would be up to him to sign any bill placed on his desk, but he has absolutely no active role in hashing out the details, other than being able to apply the pressure of his office (which is a considerable amount.).
Everything will stay in Washington, in the hands of our elected representatives. You only get a chance to vote on state issues and even then its isn't everything that you can vote on. Oh, that and we vote for some of our representatives next cycle, but by then it would be too late for anything that is introduced next year.
