House Debate and Vote on Fiscal CliffSubmitted by Ubuntu on Wed, 01/02/2013 - 08:18
I thought there should be a Thread to discuss the Live debate and vote in the House on CSPAN today. I also think we should remind our friends and family that it is no coincidence that Congress chose to engage in such a massive undertaking on New Year's Eve and New Year's day. Moreover, all of the Representative's offices are closed because it is a Federal Holiday. This means you can't contact them with comments or opinions on how they should vote. I do suggest you leave your Representative a nice message about how you feel they should vote and why you believe it is shameful that they waited until today to take such action. Such a shameful process means that the Public has no opportunity to read the text of the legislation (157 pages) and opine to their representatives how they wish them to vote. This is a shameful process, regardless of what side you're on. Remember, our Congress had 2 years to fix this mess, and, instead, they kick the can further down the road. BE ACTIVE and GET INVOLVED.
EDIT: This was my call in rant on C-SPAN. I tried to get everything in there for Liberty and Peace.
