The disaster, originally known as "Cap and Trade", and now known as the Boxer amendment has been stopped in the Senate [for now]. A "Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Boxer Amdt. No. 4825; In the nature of a substitute" has JUST been defeated. [3/5 majority was not reached] Take THAT, Babs.
Here is the vote tally and I say to all the Senators who voted against cloture "good job folks-well done!"
But...as I am always wont to do, let us advertise the Republicans that voted FOR cloture so they might be given a good scolding by their constituents before the bill actually GETS to a vote...which we KNOW will happen sooner or later:
Collins (R-ME), Dole (R-NC), Martinez (R-FL), Smith (R-OR), Snowe (R-ME), Sununu (R-NH), Warner (R-VA)
As an aside, here are the R's "Not Voting":
Coleman (R-MN), Cornyn (R-TX), Craig (R-ID), DeMint (R-SC), Graham (R-SC), Gregg (R-NH), McCain (R-AZ), Murkowski (R-AK), Specter (R-PA), Stevens (R-AK)
To the Republicans (and Democrats) that can't stomach sticking it to us little guys anymore?
This Bud's for you!
