Our victory is in the 41-21-1 bipartisan vote, giving us the momentum we need going forward.

41-22 good enough to be considered broad bipartisan support?

Would 41-22 be considered "broad bipartisan support"?

How quick before we can get a breakdown on who voted and how they voted?

Re: HR 2267 Markup, Wed. 7/28 10:00am

So far so good imo.

I lurk the legislation forum everyday but don't participate because I am pretty ignorant when it comes to most of this stuff. Instead, I take in what all posters whom are very informed on these issues have to say and I end up having a good understanding of what's going on.

That being said, I feel pretty good about our chances. As congressmen have become more informed on the issue it seems they are less likely to oppose us because "GAMBUL IS BAD LOL". I think the most effective talking point overall has been "Americans are less safe playing in an unregulated environment. We are better off regulating the industry making it more safe for Americans, and at the same time make some money off it." I feel like this is something that politicians can get on board with, even though they might not know a whole lot about this issue. With that in mind, I feel we have a pretty good chance of getting this done, especially if at some point this turns into a poker-only bill. Then I feel we have a very good chance.

Passes 41-21-1. Not quite down party lines, but heavily weighted that way.

Interesting to note that Ron Paul voted "Present" despite submitting testimony in favor of the bill.

Agree on Paul but if one republican supports a dem today it is considered bi-partisan, we had I belive 7 with a few dems voting no.

Over all bi-partisan.

Seems something like 8 did not vote at all and were not even present, I belive there are 71 full members?

I need to know how Peter King voted. I lambasted him over UIGEA and he committed to me that he would work to rectify his mistake.

He voted Yea to HR 2267

I assume the 22 who voted in the minority on the Baca and Bachus amendments, along with HR 2267 were the same.

King voted Ay...It would be foolish to let this momentum die...We really need to push for it this year b4 the november elections...Who is from Minnesota here???Bachman is a fool and a lier...She claims to be a tea party supporter for individual liberties and here she is upholding a uigea that essentially does exactly that...What a blowhard....I couldn't b more disgusted...
