Mixed bag

I know of many people who are dismayed tonight. But oddly enough, I'm hopeful!

Senator DeMint (R-SC) sponsored another amendment to the CPSIA that would have brought relief to the many businesses and industries suffering under this ridiculous legislation. It failed, BUT:

1) The original vote on the CPSIA was nearly unanimous - this one was 39-58. I call that progress!

2) Both my senators voted Aye - a big THANK YOU to Senator Sessions and Senator Shelby! I will once again consider voting for you.

Take a moment and look at the vote position, and see where your senator stood. Then either thank them for me, or educate them!

And once again, Thank You Senator DeMint!
