Kaine unable: Clinton running mate skips veto override vote of 9/11 victims bill

Hillary Clinton's running mate was one of two senators who skipped a critical vote on Wednesday to override President Obama's veto of a bill allowing relatives of 9/11 victims to sue the Saudi Arabian government.

Despite holding an event 20 minutes away from the Capitol at 9 a.m., Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine was not present when the Senate began voting around noon to override the president's veto.

Are we surprised? Just another cowardly sheep following the democratic rules. There will be a price to pay for those that did vote to veto.

I hate to say it, but this bill needs to be amended asap. It sounded like the right thing to do, but it opens a can of worms that will be extremely costly for this country.

9:02 then close our borders and keep illegals and immigrants out so they cannot sue the US Government. Cut all foreign aid off. Pass a law so other Countries citizens, including dual citizenship, cannot sue the US. Pass a law that dual citizenship will not be recognized as for as the US citizenship is concerned. Pass a bill that does not allow the UN to interfere in US law and the way the US operates.

Isn't anyone concerned that while collecting a paycheck for being a Senator, he spends his time looking for another job?
"We, the people" get fired for that.
If we didn't show up for work, but were found to be looking for another job, AND taking a check? FIRED.
TWO SETS OF LAWS.
My God. these people are so slimy and bankrupt of any integrity, it's stunning.
Even MORE stunning?
They have millions of cheerleaders.

My thought is that if you want to run for an office (President on down), you should have to give up the one you currently have. That way you get rid of a lot of "dead wood". The ones that are "testing the waters" so that they might run, for real, the next time and such. Face it, they have nothing to lose. They have a job that pays while they "run" and if they lose the simply go back to what they were doing prior to trying to move up.
You're a senator, and you want to run for president? Give up your senate seat first. If you lose....you're out of a job.
