HR2749 going for a vote today, perhaps RIGHT NOW

HR2749 is going for a vote and the format has changed to what they call "on suspension," which does not mean to Congressmen what it means to us. To us suspension means on hold or floating - it makes it sound like no big deal, we can worry about it later.

On Suspension to Congress means they do not allow any debate or amendments. No debate means it's too late for a Representative on our side to sway another. No amendments means no exemptions for homesteaders, small farmers and anyone who sells small amounts of goods in their own states.
