Piss on the U.S. Senate
An amendment calling for expanded background checks as part of the doomed gun bill failed today in the U. S. Senate.
"The amendment failed 54 to 46, falling short of the 60-vote threshold needed to break a filibuster of the measure, even as victims of the Sandy Hook shootings and other shooting watched from the Senate gallery and activists at a vigil outside the Capitol read the names of people slain since then, hoping to prompt action."
I hope the Senators listed on the right of the picture above who are up for re-election in 2014 have this vote shoved down their throats! Unfortunately my two Senators are also part of this gang of thugs who don't care what 90 percent of the American public want.
Why even bring up any bill or amendment up for a vote in the Senate when a super majority is always needed to get anything done? Fuck those 45 Senators on the right. Fuck the Senate. The National Rifle Association owns your government America...
