    If you have not done so already find out who your Congressman is, go online to his office and whip out a protest over this. The nerve of a democratic process government not listening to the people. This is revolting.
    Last chance, send this out to everyone you know in this country and have them weigh the consequinces of this insanity before it's too late and the option dies not exist anymore, this is not acceptable.

    Security Showdown Could Impact Future

    WASHINGTON –– A Senate showdown over what Democrats call Republican special-interest goodies in the homeland security legislation could determine the bill's fate in Congress this year.

    The Democratic-controlled Senate was expected to vote late Monday on whether to strip seven GOP items from the bill. Republicans say that move could kill any chance that the Homeland Security Department legislation would make it to President Bush's desk this year.

    "With Congress' vote on the final legislation, America will have a single agency with the full-time duty of protecting our people against attack," Bush said over the weekend. In the new agency, he said, "We'll have good people, well-organized and well-equipped, working day and night to oppose the serious dangers of our time."

    Senate Democrats say majority House Republicans slipped several provisions into the bill that they say have nothing with homeland security – and without consulting Democrats.

    "The bill the president supported was 35 pages long. The bill that I've been asked to vote on on Monday or Tuesday is 484 pages long, filled with special interest legislation, loaded up by the House Republicans in the last few days," Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation."

    The most egregious, Democrats say, is language to protect pharmaceutical companies from lawsuits over the vaccines they create and their side effects, including wiping out lawsuits already in court.

    "Does this have anything at all to do with homeland security? The answer is no," Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., said last week. And one GOP lawmaker, Rep. Dan Burton of Indiana, said he was unaware of the provision when he voted for the bill last week and now wants it removed. He said it would take away the rights of families whose children are injured by a vaccine.

    Republicans deny that the provision would wipe out current lawsuits, and say future liability protection is needed to ensure that drug companies will produce the vaccines that America needs to fight the war on terrorism.

    Bush's homeland security chief, Tom Ridge, took issue Sunday with Burton's characterization of the provision.

    "If you look at the present system, these families and these children have access to compensation through a special fund that was set up. And if they're not satisfied with that, they still reserve the right to litigate it. So I would disagree with his conclusion," Ridge said on ABC's "This Week."

    The bill also include liability shields for airport security companies and businesses that sell approved anti-terrorism technologies, and a measure to block Senate-approved legislation to bar government contracts with corporations that have moved their headquarters offshore to avoid U.S. taxes.

    The bill would also create at least one new university-based homeland security research center. Democrats say it was intended for Texas A&M University, a favorite of retiring Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Texas. Republicans say it could go to any number of universities.

    GOP leaders argue that all of the provisions are related to homeland security and should not be taken from the House-approved bill.

    If the bill is changed substantially, aides said, the leaders are unlikely to call House members back to Washington to consider it, thus killing it for the year.

    Once the Senate finishes with the homeland security bill, it will move on to the terrorism insurance legislation passed by the House.

    Under the bill, the government would cover up to $90 billion annually in insurance claims from any future terrorist attacks for the next three years. The government would cover up to 90 percent of insured losses from major attacks, with the insurance industry covering up to the first $15 billion in annual claims.

    The measure does not cover last year's terrorist attacks, which generated an estimated $40 billion in claims that insurers had to cover.

    Interesting that they slipped a disclaimer in the bill to protect pharmacuetical companies from liability against damages from vaccines........Because the evidence against the saftey of vaccines is unbelievable now.

    I am convinced now that we are all sick from contaminated and toxic vaccinations.........They have already proven that the polio vaccinations were contaminated with SCMV..Simian Cytomegalovirus...or (basically monkey herpes) Do a search of this virus... also found under abbrev.. SV40.

    The government admits there was contamination...but denies it causes illnesses.......I guess they are waiting till the bill passes before they admit this horrible mistake.

    They will have to shoot me with a gun before I will let them shoot me with another syringe full of viruses and toxins.......IMO...DJ

    Friday my 4 year old son had is last rounds before school - MMR, DPT, Polio injection - his little leg swelled up beyond belief, was HOT to the touch & bright red & purple. ER visit Sunday, they said it was ok - give benadryl & gave him a shot for the pain - leg looks much better. Today he has weird blotchy rashes - tonite he came upstairs in the middle of getting his pjs on screaming his head hurt - had me lay him on the couch - he seemed to get head pains - not a constant headache but would suddenly start crying his head hurt so bad - he had no fever & tylenol wouldnt help the pain - another trip to the ER - on the way he vomited from his head pain - said his stomach didnt hurt - in the ER he seemed ok (of course) so the doc sent him home saying it was more than likely a virus - I KNOW it was his shots - poor thing vomited all the way home too. I'm scared to let him sleep tonite. I know he's hurting because he doesn't complain about anything. I will never get mt kids another vaccine - they say if they get a reaction from one than the next will only be worse. I don't get it - hes had all these shots before w/no problems - have they changed something in them in the past 2 years? Its a very scary thing for me not knowing why this is happening. Amy
