  1. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    NO. when you said, "yes dumbass, 50 votes is all that is needed if all senators are present and voting" it was, and it remains an incorrect statement. 51 VOTES are needed. Those 51 votes can come in two different ways: one way can be 51 senators voting for versus 49 voting against.... the only OTHER way is 51 voting for versus 49 voting against and the 51st vote FOR measure is cast by the President of the Senate who has no vote EXCEPT WHEN THE CHAMBER IS EVENLY DIVIDED. 51 votes will ALWAYS be the minimum required to pass a bill through the senate if all senators are present and voting. 51-49 or 51-50. that's it. 50 will NOT get it done. 50 senators got it close to the goal line, but one senate president got it DONE.

    not if all senators are present and voting it can't. Gotta have 51.... 50 won't get it done.... son.

    Golfpimp can't admit that when he said, he was wrong. He will twist and wiggle and change the subject and obfuscate and insult and do ANYTHING other than admit that 50 votes is never all that is needed if all senators are present and voting. Here is what he said: Yes dumbass, 50 votes IS all that's needed "if all senators are present and voting". That is wrong. In those instances, the 51st vote cast for the measure by the Senate president is required.

    and golfpimp with his stable of Mexican 2nd graders knows that.... he just can't force himself to admit that he had been wrong.
  5. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    exactly... in his role as president of the senate. In that role, he has no vote except when the chamber is equally divided, and then he gets one vote. If Pence had been away from Washington on Tuesday night, the measure would not have passed. 50 votes is never enough if all senators are present and voting. Never. The least number of votes needed is 51... two ways to get there: 51-49 or 51-50.
  6. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    again...I really think it's part of your brain damage... you see "votes" and somehow, your brain changes that to "senators". I ask you how many votes Mitch got on Tuesday night, and all you can respond is that he got 50 senators. Brain damage.
  7. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    I can count. Why do you think that the roll call is recorded in the congressional record as 51-50? Mitch didn't necessarily need only 50 senators. he could have 51 senators and reached his goal with a roll call tally of 51-49. The fact is... he needed 51 VOTES. The measure would not have passed with only 50 VOTES if all senators were present and voting. honestly.... I am starting to think that not even you can be this stupid OR this stubborn. Like I said, there have been four occasions already in this administration where the recorded roll call showed that 101 votes were cast: 51-50. Can YOU do math? what do fifty-one plus fifty equal???
  8. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    not at all... but Mitch needed 51 on Tuesday night... and he got them.... 50 would not have been enough.
  9. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    gotta have 51.... 50 won't get it done.... son. hahahahahahahaha
  10. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    you cannot read. THERE ARE 100 SENATORS THERE WERE 101 VOTES CAST IN THE SENATE ON TUESDAY NIGHT THE FINAL TALLY WAS 51-50 AS IS RECORDED IN THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD.
  11. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    THAT's the part that disturbs me. Anybody in Idaho who offers someone living in Merida, Mexico a Mexican 2nd grader is suspect.
  12. I wonder how many white people south of the M-D line thought that blacks should be able to drink from white folk's drinking fountains back in 1964?
  13. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    who died and made you boss? go fuck yourself.
  14. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    not at all. you have offered them to me in the past... I was appalled when you did so, but if you would let on where you have them held captive, I could notify the Idaho State Police and maybe they could find them and set them free. I have no idea where you got them, or what you're doing with them, but I took you at your word when you made the offer and I want to do all I can to shut down your child slavery business.
  15. 2 rep vote no pence may need to break tie

    I deny nothing. I stand here and proclaim that you have a reading disability. there were 101 votes cast on Tuesday night. 51-50 was the tally. Mitch could be overheard earlier in the day, "Gotta have 51.... 50 won't get it done" and he was right. He got the 51 he needed.
