A small tear fell down Doc's eyes. Not from sobbing, but from the fact that he had just eaten a rather large onion beforehand, and the irritants made him water. He wasn't about to shed tears for one of the most controversial politicians in American history, but wasn't about to raise hell over some post office either... It was just a post office, anyways, and once this was out of the way, then the real legislative good-ness could ooze out, like a melty, cheesy... cheese pizza.

Doc was now hungry, unfortunately, but he supressed his grumbling stomach to vote on the bill.

"Aye!"

Paul rolled his eyes, which turned into narrowing them in utter confusion as the Speaker wrote to Broussard instead of him. Did the Speaker not even know who was writing the bills?

Paul wrote back immediately.

Mr. Speaker, I am incredibly disappointed to see this error of judgment. I hope you understand how deeply unpopular forced busing policies are on a national level, and that in fact blocking action on this issue will do more harm than good for our electoral chances. I pray you reconsider this mistake.

Mr. Noble I hope you find solace in the fact that I agree with your bill and the fact that busing is a bad policy, however you and I both know we are facing an uphill battle in the upcoming election, and I would not like to jeprodize our house majority with a bill that could easily be re-submitted next legislative year.

Mr. Speaker, quite frankly, this argument could be applied to every bill. There are policies being proposed by members of our party that are far more controversial than this, yet they aren't being rejected on the grounds of protecting our majority. Not to mention the fact that we run the risk of a southern revolt if we are seen as weak on busing and similar issues. This bill would not jeopardize our majority, but in fact strengthen it by preventing the possibility of Republicans flanking us from the south as Silvermilk did in 1964.

Massachusetts Senator Abraham S. Simpson puts the following bill for consideration on the congressional docket:

Image



Official Name: An Act to Protect the lives of American Soldiers and to Calm domestic concerns with respect to the ongoing War in Indochina

Nickname: Chesapeake Bay Resolution; Gulf-of Tonkin Repeal Act


Overview: This act shall enable the legislative house of government to take back the powers originally granted to it by the U.S. Constitution, which foremost is the power to approve declarations of war and peace with foreign states.

Sponsor: United States Senator Abraham S. Simpson (D-MA)
Co-Sponsors:


Section 1:
Under the authority of section 3 of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, it states the following: "This resolution shall expire when the President shall determine that peace and security of the area is reasonably assured by international conditions created by the actions of the United Nations, except that it may be terminated earlier by a concurring resolution of Congress"

Section 2:
Under this authority, this Congress now finds that peace and security of the area is now "reasonably assured", in spite of differing opinions by the commander-in-chief of our armed forces. The legislative house of government therefore, formally Repeals the entirety of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, owing to a more stable government in Indochina and the surrounding region.


This bill is then honorably presented to the Senate for consideration in order to solidify Congress's war making abilities away from the Executive branch to improve the United States Law and is backed by Abraham S. Simpson on February 9, 1968.

Internally, Paul was fuming. What an idiot this Speaker turned out to be! He reclined in his chair, taking a sip of his water as he waited for the House to proceed.

Broussard replies;
I support your decision. I hope, if you're still in power, that you change your mind post-election.

United States House of Representatives
Representative Hubert Broussard
[Democratic - 7th Congressional District of the State of Louisiana]
{Chair of the House Dixiecrat Caucus} {Deputy Chair of the House Judiciary Committee} {Speaker Pro Tempore}

"I'd like to thank the speaker for relinquishing his seat to me of all people. First on the agenda, with the motion to suspend the rules passing with the required two-thirds majority, the Joshua Sharp Federal Post Office Renaming Act passes in the United States House of Representatives and is sent to the Senate for voting. I'd like to also move the No Forced Busing Act back onto the docket. With that being the next item on the docket, the House will take up that bill. The Clerk will read the bill. The House Floor is open to motions and debate regarding this bill."

"Hearing an objection before the second, the motion to suspend the rules and pass the Forced Busing Act fails. The House Floor is still open to motions and debate regarding the Forced Busing Act."

Note to Noble:
We can't slip this one past them, this is a controversial bill we have a week to pass it so if they want the long and dreary debate, we'll have to suck it up and let them have it.
