It could still be the correct roll call, i’m still not sure. Here’s the descriptor that leads to that roll call, from the 2016 roll call page:
“On the Cloture Motion: Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Motion to Concur in the House Amendment with an Amendment; A bill to reauthorize and amend the National Sea Grant College Program Act, and for other purposes.”
And here’s the descriptor from that roll call:
Measure Number: S. 764 (Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015)
Measure Title: A bill to reauthorize and amend the National Sea Grant College Program Act, and for other purposes.
All of which shows multiple layers of ridiculousness! It’s the reauthorization of the National Sea Grant College Program Act… which is given the short title of the “Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015”… which is then multiply amended for all kinds of other skulduggery including the DARK Act…
i know the right wingers had their own reasons for pushing the “line item veto.” But the practice of larding bills, essentially, with other bills, through the amendment process, is NOT transparent; works against a fair open process of genuine deliberation; and works against the possibility of genuine representation.
i mean, what could be more transparent than “On the Cloture Motion: Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Motion to Concur in the House Amendment with an Amendment.”
The system is so corrupt it’s defunct, but the zombie of this “Republic” still walks the Earth…
