    Udall (CO) is taking a beating as a liberal around here. He's playing safe.

    Trancredo is a disappointment.

    I have been searching for the roll call and I came up with this same link at a few news websites, but I can't get the actual site to load because the server was so busy.

    Did you notice the description seems to be the incorrect bill???

    Seems like they linked one Bill to the other?

    This is what I found:

    H.R.3997
    Title: An Act to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide tax relief and protections for military personnel, and for other purposes.
    Sponsor: Rep Rangel, Charles B. [NY-15] (introduced 10/30/2007) Cosponsors (None)
    Related Bills: H.RES.884, H.RES.1517
    Latest Major Action: 9/29/2008 Resolving differences -- House actions. Status: Pursuant to the provisions of H. Res. 1517, the House moved to agree to the Senate amendment to the House amendment to the Senate amendment with an amendment.
    House Reports: 110-426

    Note: According to the House Majority Leader, H.R.3997 will be used as the vehicle for the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. See documents on the House Financial Services Committee website and H.Res.1517 on the House Rules Committee website.

    Mine split - Rick Larsen is dead meat and Jay Inslee will get my vote when he is up for re-election.

    Thanks so much for the link!
