Does Lowell Feld Lie about "Stolen Amendment"- You be the judge
Sen Boxer said "I am very pleased that Senators DURBIN and ALLEN have gotten together so we have a bipartisan amendment to help our soldiers as they come home dealing with these brain injuries"
Sen Durbin said
Mr. DURBIN. Mr. President, I am going to ask unanimous consent, but I will make it clear that if there is any modification at a later point that Senator Allen suggests, I will be glad to work with him. I believe this is our understanding based on the colloquy we had.
I ask unanimous consent that amendment No. 4883, Senator Allen's amendment, be shown as the Allen-Durbin amendment and that my cosponsors be added as cosponsors to this amendment. My amendment No. 4884 and Senator Allen's are identical.
I encourage you to read the whole text of what happened on the Senate floor. Get the true story, not you tube sound bites and paid partisan rhetoric. This was worked out in bipartisan fashion that we all should be proud of. The sponsors and cosponsors of this amendment had no problems as the senate record shows. In fact the only one with a problem with this great piece of legislation that gives 19 million dollars to help our troops with brain injuries is Lowell Feld. While the senate showed some great bipartisan leadership, Mr Feld chose to divide and distort the truth of what happened. Durbin is clear that he and Sen Allen had a colloquy about this before it reached the floor. Nothing was stolen as Lowell said. Be sure to read the nutroots comments. Hrconservative comments and writes the truth about the Senate record and Lowell insults him. Lowell is playing partisan politics and distorting the truth about a amendment that gives millions in aid to our injured troops. What a man!
