  •  Up or Down Vote: Death of a GOP Talking Point (0+ / 0-)

    On Thursday morning, July 19th, the beloved GOP talking point "up or down vote" was officially declared dead. Its demise was little noticed in the aftermath of the Senate Republicans' successful all-night filibuster to block the Reed-Levin bill seeking to begin U.S. troop withdrawals from Iraq. "Up or down vote" was killed by a desperate Republican Party trying to obstruct Democratic accomplishments at any cost in advance of the 2008 elections. And so far, the GOP seems to be getting away with the crime.

      it against them.

      Show each and every mouth piece from the 109th session up or down.... blah and then show the stats of block legislation.

      30 seconds would do it.

      Unleash the potential to make a difference
