10. I believe that you may have a good question .......
Edited on Thu Mar-01-07 06:44 PM by FrenchieCat
But you should provide more than a link on that amendment. I remember Bin-Lugar, but don't remember a Durbin amemdment. When was it voted on? A little bit of fleshing out on your part so that we don't have to do the research to figure out exactly what you are saying would be helpful.

Whether Chafee is "bitter", I don't know? :shrug:

What I do know is that Durbin voted Yeah on the IWR, and Chafee voted NO.

How did others vote....
Give a list, like I did. It was work, but worth it in order to provide the information in as clear way as possible.
