Below’s the breakdown of who voted how on HR 6870.

30 for
19 against
21 did not vote

Rather encouraging, too, when you see how many DNVs previously voted FOR … (even Ron Paul, the sponsor of this bill’s predeccessor, didn’t weigh in this time) … and realize that while some NAY’s were persuaded to change their vote, no decisions were reversed the other way. Nice job by Barney Frank, the PPA, and others working on poker’s sound fiscal policy’s behalf, especially with something that relieves at least a little bit of undue pressure on the beleaguered American banking system.

    Considering Ron Paul’s congressional district includes Galvestion, hopefully he was down there to provide some sort of assistance than being in DC.

    Ahh, right. Phew, I was a little concerned/disappointed when I first saw that he missed this vote. Now not so much, as I do think the utter destruction of a city is more important than poker.

    So does this mean that the bill is that much closer to passing? By the time everything is back to normal, FT checks might actually clear. Yay PPA…oh and you Dan. Cheers!
