[Best Syndication News] A civil lawsuit was filed against Toyota Motor Corp. today by Orange County California prosecutors on behalf of the people. This lawsuit is accusing Toyota for continuing to sell cars and trucks that they knew had defective acceleration gas pedals.

(Best Syndication News) Today's the day. This afternoon we're going to have a vote on whether or not the United States gets out of Afghanistan or stays there indefinitely.

It's time that Congress weighed in. The Constitution makes it very clear that the War Powers are vested in the Congress. Unfortunately, a series of Presidents have made decisions to take the country into a war and to keep the country in war without seeking Congress' expressed permission. So this is, in fact, a Constitutional issue and that should be of interest to members of Congress from all over the nation, whatever their political persuasion.

Byrd and Pelosi

(Best Syndication News) Republicans are angry because Democrats may use the reconciliation process to bypass a possible filibuster in the Senate. A budget reconciliation may allow the measure to pass with a simple majority, even without any Republican votes.

First introduced in 1974, reconciliation is a process intended to allow consideration of a contentious budget bill without the threat of filibuster. It limits debate in the Senate preventing a Senator or group of Senators from halting the process through an extended debate on the proposal. A filibuster could go on for days.
