Amendment to Defund NAIS Fails

The amendment offered by Rep. Ron Paul of Texas to defund the NAIS scheme has failed. Only 34 members of the House voted for it - you can see the complete roll call here. In the Indiana delegation it appears that only Dan Burton and John Hostettler supported it: the rest, including such politically diverse personalities as Steve Buyer, Julia Carson and Mike Pence, voted to put the small farmer out of business.

Read the roll call. Remember in November.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
