From this Congress? Yeah, I think he probably did. Which is why voting for candidates for Congress is so important. Depressingly, I'm in a district which is seldom able to field a Democratic candidate fo the House. And when we do, he'a a DINO. And then he loses anyway.

I think he probably did the best he could based on the majorityof congress being Republicans. I agree with Joanne. We have to get more Dems into Congress.

Looks good on paper but...there'll always be torture allowed behind closed and locked doors, in secret, with the excuse of American safety. Thanx JL.

Cheers: Although the bill may not stop ALL torture it is at least a beginning of ending this disgusting practice, which in my opinion, puts an indelible stain on the USA for condoning any form of torture. It goes against everything I was taught about my country.

Mixed: When I learned that the NFL was paid to honor veterans I was insulted. They are all ready tax exempt, which is a slap in the face to poor citizens who pay taxes and don't earn the mega millions the NFL does. Glad they are stopping this.

Jeers: We all know he has had to fight this Congress every step of the way. I am sure he did the best he could.

May it be the beginning of the end... sad that we have to take baby steps with all this but then again, any victory over Republican idiocy is good.
