How exactly does the senate vote?

On July 16, 2013, in Senate Debate, by admin

I’ve seen the senate sometimes on CSPAN debate bills and then afterwards they vote for the bills. But when the voting is shown, all I see is the senators just walking around talking. And the announcer just randomly says the names of certain senators. Then a few minutes later, the votes are counted automatically. I don’t see anyone walk up to the table and leave a vote or anything. Do they vote electronically? I don’t understand.

Step 1: the Republicans filibuster it so no one votes.

(they have electronic push-button voting)


I’m Australian so know very little about the US election process, but why does it take so long to vote for a new president. Election are drawn out affairs in Australia too but don’t go on for that long and everyone is so glad when its all over and not on the front page of the paper every day. It must cost billions of dollars as well – does it need to be that long and drawn out?
So how long is the election season then? It seems like its been going on for the whole year.

and i thought 6 weeks for australias federal election last year was too long.

i think its partly because their politics is different though ie over here we have a leader of a party that is chosen by the party. then when the party runs in the election whoever the current leader is is the person that goes for PM.

over there theyre members of a party but the party doesnt choose a leader they choose who theyll endorse and then they get registered members to choose that so they have a long drawn out primaries process. then a huge long drawn out presidential campaign


House Republicans have been virtually begging administration officials to ask for permission to move money around. If one program could be more easily cut than others, those Republicans say, just ask us, and we’ll let you do it.

"We sent out on Feb. 28 a letter to every Cabinet officer asking them what changes they’d like to have — pluses, subtractions and so on — to give them an opportunity to show us at least one program they would like to have cut, which would then save on sequestration," Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said in an interview recently. "We did not receive a single answer."

Issa explained that Congress can allow Cabinet officials to "reprogram" money to ease the burden of sequestration. For example, the sequester requires the Department of Transportation to cut $2 billion from its budget.

"If they were to come up with, for example, $500 million in cuts, their remaining sequestration would drop by 25 percent," Issa said. "If they were able to come up with $2 billion worth of things they wanted to drop altogether or reduce, then they would have no sequestration."

In other words, Obama Cabinet officials, if they chose, could have an enormous amount of flexibility in making the required budget cuts. They just don’t want to. "We’ve had zero answers," repeated Issa.

At a recent committee hearing, Rep. Jim Jordan asked officials from the Transportation and Education departments a simple question. Since they’ve known about sequestration for a long time and also know they have the ability to ask Congress to reprogram money, why haven’t they responded to Issa’s letter offering help?

The officials had no answers. "Those wheels are turning," said the man from the Education Department, indicating that, whatever crisis sequestration presents, the bureaucracy will take its time to respond.

It turned out that the officials had done little or no preparing for sequestration and instead focused on drastic measures — things like closing down one of the two air traffic control towers at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport — to deal with it.

"I would think that most public servants would want to do what’s in the best interest of the taxpayers and the public, and not try to do things for political gain," Jordan said in an interview later. "But let’s be honest. Some of the statements we’ve heard from the administration run counter to what we hope public officials would do."

The whole idea of the sequester is that it’s so terrible that Congress would feel forced to do its job. Taking away the pain would only encourage their intransigence.

If you have a history of mental illness then you are not going to get any gun rights.


For an assignment, I have to explain an iron triangle of a certain issue, and I chose education. This is what I found so far:
PAC: NEA (National Education Association)
Congress: House Committee on Education and the Workforce- 24 Republicans and 18 Democrats
Bureaucratic Agency: Department of Education

But I have to explain why this is an iron triangle, and I’m not exactly sure how. What exactly do these groups do for each other?

If you could point me in the right direction, or at least tell me where I should look, that’d be great!
Not trying to get my homework done for me..

It doesn’t work.
