6. God forbid we learn from history....so lets just repeat it!
Edited on Wed Feb-25-09 10:24 PM by davepc
Hopefully it wont cost us congress again.

I don't want to destroy the good atmosphere in the room or in the country tonight, but I have to mention one issue that divided this body greatly last year. The last Congress also passed the Brady Bill and, in the crime bill, the ban on 19 assault weapons. I don't think it's a secret to anybody in this room that several members of the last Congress who voted for that aren't here tonight because they voted for it. And I know, therefore, that some of you who are here because they voted for it are under enormous pressure to repeal it. I just have to tell you how I feel about it. -- Bill Clintons 1995 State of the Union


And by "several" Bill meant the Democratic majority in both houses.
