Scroll for updates…7:17pm Eastern – Monstrosity passes 219-212 with 8 GOP turncoat votes…needed 218 votes…GOP turncoats made the difference…roll call vote link below…

It has been a wild day on the House floor. GOP leader John Boehner is going to read the entire 300-page late-night manager’s amendment into the record. Good to see some fight left in the GOP. This is must see TV.

Update: Well, the “filibuster” was a mini-filibuster. Boehner should have read entire bill. Then read entire suppressed Carlin EPA report. We are headed to vote on final passage…

Hold your breath.

Meanwhile, a glimmer of hope:

Passing President Obama’s “cap and trade” energy program would cost the average Oklahoma family $3,200 a year, Sen. Jim Inhofe said Friday, but he’s confident the measure will be killed in the Senate no matter what happens in the House of Representatives.

The Tulsa Republican, a longtime critic of what he considers “this hoax called global warming,” made his latest statements during a morning stop in Shawnee while House members in Washington were preparing to vote on the controversial issue.

“Between the years of 1998 and 2005, I was the only member of the United States Senate who would take on what I call ‘the Hollywood elitists’ and the United Nations on this hoax called global warming and I went through seven years of purgatory on that issue.

“But now I’ve been redeemed and the vast majority of the scientific community has now said Inhofe’s right and the United Nations is wrong and those individuals … have now said ‘no, the science is not there and these are natural cycles.”

7:13pm: Less than 3 minutes left. There are 7 GOP turncoats with recorded YEA votes.

What were their payoffs???
