Don't celebrate too fast on HR1207 - plase readSubmitted by ThePatriot on Thu, 11/19/2009 - 15:43
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.
