    • On June 26, 2009, by DMiller2911 - Once again the power elite have decided to increase the burden on the people. It does not matter to those in Washington that we are hurting and that this will tremendously increase the cost of energy or that it will once again damage our business environment in the US. Once again our non representing representatives are pandering to the special interest and their own interest! It will be interesting to hear the outcome of the vote today. We need to kick every member out of office that votes for this bill. Its crap!!!

    • On June 26, 2009, by ConservativeFLrunner - Agree with DMiller2911.... If this travesty of justice passes, every single "yes" vote needs to be booted out in 2010 or 2012. This is criminal, and it's got to STOP. I've been calling the undecided reps all morning & am sick of being forced to become an activist to do what the weasels in Congress (that I am paying for) are SUPPOSED to be doing! Please stand with me- lets take our country back one vote at a time!!

    • On June 26, 2009, by Whackamole - I am watching this live on Cspan and what is being allowed to take place is a gross injustice. The vote today is no different than a premature ejaculation! It simply shouldnt be happening. The Republicans need to protest what is taking place on the floor. The vote must be stopped! No one has read this bill, much less the 300 pages that were created and added at 2:45 a.m. this am and voted on and passed this morning without a full house. Any one of the 300 pages can and will alter the original bill. This is NOT Justice. This is not effective government. This is a royal screw job!
