    Thanks everyone for your hard work.
    Are we sure it can't come back up today or tomorrow? The Senate calendar still shows votes for today on other issues?

    I recieved an e-mail message at 2:22 am today from an extremely reliable source. This is what it said:


    "Subject: HR 1554

    Passed at 2:20 am.

    Congratulations!"

    That means it definitely passed in the US House of Representatives.

    I've seen nothing in print yet on the Senate side. A friend rather close to it relayed the message it was held up. If the Senate has indeed not yet adjourned for good in the 109th Congress, I'm still crossing my fingers and holding my breath.

    I received my info from a lobbyist who is very reliable. I don't know any more. I cried when I heard it passed in the House, relayed the news to a friend, Cried again when I heard it didn't pass the Senate.

    What can I say, evidentally we made a difference with all of our calls to the House, lesson learned I guess.

    Be proud that we moved it out of committee and to a vote in this lame duck sessin. The National call in as well as the House and Senate visits made a difference.

    Again,thank you everyone who offered encouragement, support and a helping hand.

    My son is heartbroken, me I don't quite know how to explain the politics to him.

    Yes, I know you did, cheesecake. When I didn't see anything definitive, I still held out hope. That hope has dwindled. Damnit. Argh......so close.

    That is the question. As John Smith said, this is deja vu. We never found out who the 1 was last time. All we have are guesses.

    It's a mystery for the ages. How does a roomfull of 100 men that REALLY like to hear themselves talk, keep a secret???
