Well, it’s official. Both houses of Congress can’t get enough damn nerve together to protect citizens who report suspicious activity. Hesitation, in fear of consequences, by citizens can prove disastrous. Audrey Hudson of the Washington Times reports:
The Senate just rejected an amendment that would have added the “John Doe” protection provision to an education bill. The vote was 57 for and 39 against, but the vote involved a Senate procedural rule that required a three-fifths majority for approval.
Michelle also has the roll. All Republicans, along with 7 Democrats, voted for the measure. All “Nays” were from donkeys. Brownback, Feinstein, Johnson, and Obama weren’t voting. Michelle writes:
Bottom line: The Dems believe that if you see something, you should just shut up.
This fight is not over. There still is a final conference report to be hashed out. Keep your phones lit. The Senate Dems need to hear from you.
Interesting to note: Hillary voted for the measure. All other major Democrats (Reid, Kennedy, Kerry, Leahy, Biden, Boxer, Dodd, and company) voted against protecting Americans.
