    Exclamation GOA e-mail I received

    Charles Babington of the Associated Press reported on September 16 about the
    Senate Democratic leadership's latest sleazy maneuver to pass the anti-gun
    health care bill.
    http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...V8R8gD9AOL0280
    They are reportedly trying to convince the "swing" senators to "throw" the
    pivotal 60-vote cloture vote on shutting down debate on the anti-gun bill.
    The "swings" would then be allowed to vote against the bill on final
    passage, where only 50 votes (plus the Vice-President) are needed.

    Under this scenario, the senators would then go back to their constituents
    and claim to have opposed the anti-gun health care bill because they voted
    against it on "final passage." The critical outcome-determinative votes on
    "cloture" and on "waiving the budget act" -- which will determine whether
    the bill passes or fails -- would only have been "procedural votes," they
    would argue.

    It is hard to imagine that anyone with an IQ over 50 would think anyone
    would swallow this dirty trick.

    But, just to make sure, we want to let you know that no one will be fooled
    if a senator casts a deciding vote to pass the anti-gun health care bill on
    cloture or waiving the budget act, and then tries to trick us with a
    meaningless vote against final passage.

    To reiterate: The important votes are the 60-vote-margin votes on "cloture"
    and on "waiving the budget act." No one will be fooled by a senator who
    votes wrong on these and then casts a meaningless vote against final
    passage.

    Gun Owners of America will continue to inform me as to what is happening on
    this important issue.

    It's not hard to imagine at all; Republicans and Democrats routinely swallow these lies and continue to vote incumbents back into office. They believe their own rep has their best interest at heart and it's someone else's rep who needs to go.

    Until normal voters open their eyes and break the pattern things will not change.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam
