I was watching the House floor live stream all day today, waiting for the House to take up the DREAM Act. I didn't get to see every speech, but this one really made me smile.
Another stand-out floor speech:
Thank you, Congressman Howard Berman, Congressman Luis Gutierrez and every single representative that voted for the DREAM Act today. Thank you, too to every single Congressional Staffer who made this happen. I am so thankful. The DREAM Act passed the US House of Representatives 216 to 198. This means that I have 216 "thank you" phone calls to make, tomorrow.
Now the Senate needs to pass it, and then President Obama can sign it into law! I heard that the Senate may take it up tomorrow.
