76. I just happen to know the procedure
Edited on Sun Mar-18-07 02:43 AM by nadinbrzezinski
and given how these bills come together, yes, they NEED both houses. And if they are going to do it EFFECTIVELY they need to overcome that veto pen... I know reality

I know it is hard to understand... for the pollyanas...

I am quite the Cassandra... and a realist

I hate the reality of this, since... it will lead to at least 2000 more US troops killed, oh 20K injured \ disabled, oh at least 20K Iraqis killed and 100,000 injured.

I hate that reality and I wish I would take my wand, go ooogah, ooogah, ooogah and none of this happened

Alas I live in reality... as part of the reality based community

So unless you are wishing to do something quite dramatic... you will have to work with what we have...

And what we have is far better now than it was on November 6th, 2006

You might disparage hearings, but all those hearings you disparage are part of the process to end the war, so is horse trading and alliance building, and... my pestering my congress and senate critters with letters, talking to my neighbors getting them to do the same, and essentially building coalitions. This is politics... and it is dirty and at times there is high theater, but chiefly, go blame the Framers, IT IS SLOW.

You understand it now?
