Awesome news. I was ecstactically watching the vote live, and saw the no vote crawl up to beat this bill. By a very small margin, we the people, won this fight against corporations!
A great day for the people of America.

Holy crap! The way things were going when they first announced this bill, I thought it was guarenteed to pass with all the big names pushing it. But now the question on everyone's minds, what gets proposed next? How long before its implemented?

I am amazed! Of course, they can still try to convince some to change their vote.

218 is the majority.

Woo-Hoo! I can't believe they did this!

According to Sky News they have a certain period of time to discuss/persuade on this before the Nay is accepted? Surely a vote is a vote?

Are you sure about this? I mean this is great news!! But I would like to see a link or some other source that says this is true, and the Bill was voted down..

I honestly expected to wake up this morning, get on ATS, and Find.
BILL passed!!!
Hmmm this is an unforseen event. Can it be true?

207-226 final vote on CSPAN! I'm dancing for joy here! (And if any of you have ever seen a redneck dance, you know how scary that is
)

I don't think we have to worry about vote changes. that's a 19 vote spread, and those opposed to the bill were pretty adamant. Bye-bye financial markets, it's been lousy knowin' ya!

grrr, typed the vote wrong....

Here's a link from MSNBC on the rejection of the bill by the House.

Watching CSPAN now, the vote is still open as proponents of the bill are attempting to get 11 to change their vote from no to yes. This is the same tactic used back in the Medicare drug bill passage... it initially didn't pass, and the republicans kept the vote open to convince no voters to change their vote.

It's not over yet.

How long can they keep the vote open?

The bill has failed (but they can call it back up)


R Yea - 141 - Nay - 94 (3:2 For)

D Yea - 66 - Nay - 132 (2:1 Against)

You just don't want to watch me dance SO.


Seriously, I listened to the entire debate (all 4 hours of it!) and I didn't hear anyone who seemed to have an open mind. I don't think they'll be able to pull this one out at the whistle.

CNN commentators (for what they're worth) are now saying it's over as well.

On motion to suspend the rules and pass

= 308 yea and 3 nay

What does that mean? That they'll ignore the nay vote and pass it anyway?!

They have 2 minutes left.

Can someone explain what this might mean please. Thanks
