Don't celebrate too fast on HR1207 - plase read

All that actually passed so far today is that the Paul Greyson amendment, HR1207 goes to a vote at 4:00 today I believe. Other amendments to HR1207 will also be voted on today.

I know many already think Ron Paul's bill passed but it didn't or that this is a victory, but it is not yet. Hold on to your seats at 4:00 and then the real test begins.

Even if HR1207 passes the house it still needs to goto the Senate and will need to pass there and then it must have the Presidents signature. If the bill is vetod it will require a 2/3 majority to over ride the veto.

If we are to make effective changes we must understand what we are fighting for first.

Seems like everybody wants....

A piece of this history...they are throwing in one amendment after another...

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”

There was a voice vote. I heard only one "no". (Watt.) Barney pronounced the amendment carried. Watt asked for a roll-call vote. I think that's what is happening at 4. I could be wrong. It's confusing.
