Speaker Pelosi announces that the House passes financial reform (updated)
Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 06:35 PM by ProSense
Via Daily Kos



Roll call


Updated to note: Kucinich voted for the bill. In fact, except for Lynn Woolsey, who didn't vote, and Marcy Kaptur, who did, the entire Progressive Caucus voted for the bill.

1. Thanks for posting the roll call.
My Representative, Bruce Braley, voted for financial reform. And to the surprise of absolutely nobody, the two republican reps. in our great state, Latham and S. King voted no. I wish they would go away. Especially King.

3. Castle (running for Senate in a Blue State), Cao (rep in
deep blue district, likely toast), and the one genuine independent thinker in the Republican caucus.

4. But we had to lose the tax on banks for this. Oy.

9. The next bill could be to impose a 15% tax on banks
why not? Not the end of the road by any means?

10. Sure, they'll go back and fix any problems with the bill later.
Like we haven't heard that one before.

13. Because we're still waiting for the "fixes"
to NAFTA & NCLB. - Just to name a couple pieces of imperfect legislation that was going to be corrected later.

5. So this is just the house vote
the senate won't vote until the 12th of July according to your link. Interesting, I just doctored the form letter sent from Organizing for America to my two senators and one representative.

I was snarky to Voinovich and told him that I knew his record and that he rarely if ever voted in the best interest of America and wondered if he could consider "the little people" this time rather than Wall Street.

It was fun to write that even though I know he'll never read it, I will however get a form letter in reply telling me why he just couldn't support this. :eyes:
