How a Bill Becomes Law

Well, considering how the Democrats completely by-passed the legislative process for making a bill a law, I thought a civics lesson was in order. This is from my childhood, we need to bring these commercials back. This was unbelievable how they fast tracked this immigration bill.

That, is how it is SUPPOSED to work

Oh yeah, the immigration bill passed cloture easily with 69 votes, but there will now be 2 weeks of debate. Another anomaly, they used a cloture vote to allow debate and it is traditionally used for stopping debate and moving to a vote. It seems the Democrats have tossed out the rule book.
