Three "Blind" Senators: See How They Run!

On Palm Sunday, three Republican Senators met, and by "voice vote" passed the Schiavo Bill for the United States Senate. What a mockery of democracy! How do three Senators feel it is appropriate for them to pass legislation that strips family rights from the dying?

As reported:
The Senate's GOP leadership won agreement on the legislation from Democrats, who didn't even show up Sunday for the voice vote that took less than two minutes.

With Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., presiding, the compromise Schiavo bill passed on a voice vote in a chamber empty of senators save for Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and John Warner, R-Va.

Click here for my tribute to these "blind" Senators, who willingly interfere in our Justice System, denying a spouse the right to provide appropriate "directives" for the care of their loved one.

Isn't this an awful situation. Jeanette and I have started a discussion on the message board. I.m including a link back here because your opinions are right on.

Thanks Marie. I don't think there is anything illegal about three Senators conducting business, but the whole thing stinks. I mean is that the best that the Democrats can do?

Thanks for the link!
