Senate Votes to End Debate on NCLB Rewrite, Rejects Lee’s Amendment Allowing Parent Opt-Outs from Tests - Breitbart
Our lives are about to change (not for the better). Senate Votes to Fund Obamacare. 25 Republicans just voted to fund Obamacare. The cloture vote to end debate on the House passed Continuing Resolution happened just moments ago. 25 Republicans voted in favor of ending debate, even though they knew that it would result in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid attaching an amendment to that would allow funding for Obamacare. These 25 Republicans were relying on 5 Democrats to switch over on final passage, rather than relying on themselves to draw a line in the sand and demand a 60 vote threshold to fund Obamacare. They will try to tell you that on final passage of the bill they voted against Obamacare, but the simple truth is - their vote for cloture was a vote to fund Obamacare. Simple logic would have told them that if they voted on cloture and allowed Harry Reid to strip the defunding measure out of the bill that it would easily pass on a 51 vote simple majority. Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee along with a f ...

WOMEN'S HEALTH Huffington Post: North Carolina Abortion Bill: State Senate Votes on Restrictive Measure North Carolina's state Senate voted Tuesday to pass a second reading of a measure placing tougher restrictions on abortion after Republicans in the legislature tacked the abortion regulations on to a bill targeting Sharia law. The state Senate passed the second reading of the omnibus bill by 27-14. A final vote will be held Wednesday. Morning Memo: Abortion bill stirs opposition, puts McCrory, Tillis in tough spot The Senate's blind-sided rush to push a far-reaching measure to limit access to abortions Tuesday evening is stirring opposition groups.

With strong bipartisan support, the Senate voted to protect Pennsylvania’s fiscal and physical health. Members ...
Subject: BSA Destruction from Within Friday, 31 May 2013 11:45 Calif. Senate Votes to Drop Boy Scouts' Tax Exempt Status Written by Dave Bohon The California State Senate voted May 29 to drop the Boy Scouts' tax exempt status because of the organization's refusal to allow homosexual scout leaders. The vote, which must also be approved by the state's Assembly, came less than a week after the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) approved a change in its 103-year-old policy that will now allow boys who identify as *** to participate in the scouting program. Senate Bill 323, which was introduced in February by openly homosexual state Senator Ricardo Lara, would revoke the tax-exempt status of all non-profit youth organizations that discriminate based on gender identity or sexual orientation. The timing of the bill and comments by Lara, however, made it clear that the main target of the measure is the BSA. “They are out of line with the values of California and should be ineligible for a tax benefit paid for by all . ...

Senate Votes on Paul Amendment to Prevent Sale of F-16s to Egypt On Thursday, The Senate voted on a series of amendments to H.R.325, the debt limit bill. Included in the amendment votes was my amendment to prohibit the U.S. government from selling F-16 military aircraft, M1 tanks, and similar military weapons to the Egyptian government. The amendment failed, 79-19. I followed through on my intent to push this legislation by introducing S. 201, modeled directly from my amendment language. I think it is a blunder of the first proportion to send sophisticated weapons to a country that allowed a mob to attack our embassy and to burn our flag. I find it objectionable to send weapons, F-16s and tanks, to a country that allowed a mob chanting 'death to America' to threaten our American diplomats. Prior to the vote on my amendment, I took to the Senate floor in order to convince my colleagues to pass my amendment. To watch my speech on the Senate floor, click HERE or on the image below. Sen. Paul Introduces Natio ...
this is good news, I think. guardedly relieved. ---Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Senate Avoids ‘Fiscal Cliff’: The agreement primarily targets taxpayers who earn more than $450,000 per year, raising their rates for wages and investment profits. At the same time, the deal would protect more than 100 million households earning less than $250,000 a year from income tax increases that were scheduled to take effect in 2013, according to The Washington Post. Farm Programs Extended: The budget package also would extend most U.S. farm support programs for a year and end fears that the retail price of milk could double. The extension rankled some farm-state lawmakers who had pushed for an overhaul of dairy support programs as part of a five-year agriculture bill, Bloomberg News reported. Senate Votes to Raise Taxes on Wealthy: The Senate early on New Year’s Day overwhelmingly approved legislation that would allow tax rates to go up on the wealthiest Americans while putting off, for now, swee ...

October 11, 2002: Senate Votes to Authorize Iraq War Today marks 10 years since the Senate voted to authorize the use of military force against Iraq, paving the way for the U.S. invasion that would come less than six months later. Among those to vote in favor were future Democratic presidential candidates John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Joe Biden, who squares off against another lawmaker who also voted for war, Rep. Paul Ryan, in today’s vice-presidential debate.
Can you believe our Senate voted to continue to send billions to Egypt, Libya, Pakistan, a vote yes to support the flag burning, killing of our diplomats, and soldiers.Everyone on this list should be terminated. US Senate Votes to Continue Foreign Aid to Libya, Egypt and Pakistan After months of championing the issue of ending foreign aid, Sen. Rand Paul succeeded in his filibuster mission to bring his legislation to a vote. No surprise, the bill failed tonight by a vote of 81 to 10. Senators voting in support of Rand Paul’s bill to limit foreign aid: DeMint, Grassley, Shelby, Paul, Toomey, Moran, Lee, Roberts, Risch and Crapo. The rest of the Senate voted to continue foreign aid to Libya, Egypt and Pakistan. (See list below.) On the next vote, Senator Paul stood alone, 90-1, on a vote to increase pressure on Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Paul stated before the vote that, while he opposed Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, this bill would be a vote for preemptive war. Sen. Paul’s bill, S. 3576, called for ...

Family Law Reform Improvements in Parenting Time Law in MN Late Breaking News. A Few Moments Ago - Just before Midnight Wed night MN Senate Votes to Increase Presumptive Parenting Time to 35% A Huge Step for Families of Divorce – Treating Parents (more) Equally – and Helping to Ensure Children Have Greater Access to BOTH Parents. At about 11:55 pm Wed May 9, 2012 the MN Senate voted with nearly a 70% bi-partisan YES margin to INCREASE the parenting time presumption from the current 25% parenting time to 35% parenting time. It was clear in the debate that movement to equality is needed and imminent! The Senate version of the bill fell short of the (preferred) House version of the bill (HF322) which was a “reform” bill that passed with a two-thirds majority of 80-53 bi-partisan support. The house version would work to reduce conflict and litigation and provides for a presumption of joint physical custody and equal shared parenting. The Senate bill does not. But the battle for an additional 10% paren ...
