Vote Tally Count Safe Act – Improved Refugee background check

On Wednesday, Senate Democrats successfully and predictably blocked what many conservatives described as Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)’s “Show Vote’”on refugee admissions.  Below are the links to individual votes.

It has been called a show vote because the Ryan plan, even if the President signed it, would still allow the President to bring in an unlimited number of refugees from an unlimited number of countries.

Democrats’ filibuster on the motion to proceed to Ryan’s show vote comes one month after Speaker Ryan sent President Obama a blank check to fund visa issuances to nearly 300,000 (temporary and permanent) Muslim migrants in the next 12 months alone. Ryan’s decision to fully-fund Obama’s immigration agenda arguably ceded any leverage he may otherwise have had over Democrats and ensured the large-scale migration into America would continue and grow.

Ryan’s bill, known as the American SAFE Act, was blocked by 55-43.

Cloture on H.R. 4038: American SAFE Act of 2015

This was a vote on “cloture” in the Senate, which means to end debate so that an up-or-down vote can be taken. A vote in favor is a vote to end debate and move to a vote on the issue itself, while a vote against is a vote to prolong debate or to filibuster.

The vote was related to H.R. 4038.

      300,000 at the least of these barbarians. One of the worse things either party could do to our country and we controlled the purse.

    I still don’t miss Boehner, that’s for sure…I met him once and a group of about five of us, Andrew Breitbart included (I know his family and adored him) were all talking. Boehner was drunk and swore so badly my husband almost lunged for his throat. He is awful. I mean, we all swear from time to time, but he was dropping F bombs and telling us stories where “I gave GWB the finger” , etc..not knowing me at ALL….he’s low.
    But I have always liked Ryan and can’t figure this one out……..I like and trust him. I just don’t get it.

    The bottom line, the title holder Obama wins and the chump from palookaville Paul Ryan loses- actually takes a dive. Ryan’s blank check tells all. Miss Boehner yet?

      What a disgrace. For some reason we couldn’t stop the Dems, but the Dems can stop or rather the GOP caves.
