    Hi Vicente!!

    Very thorough questions.

    Question 1 - As things stand now, it's too close to call. I can not even give an opinion on probability as I hopeful it will be DEFEATED, but do not know or can even guess. Things are in such turmoil in our country right now....it's anybody's guess. The American People want the bill DEFEATED but the President wants it passed and as he did in the US Senate bought votes with American Tax money to sway the outcome in direct conflict with the Will and Best Interest of the American People.

    People on down on this President because of his agenda that conflicts with our best interest as we see it.

    I wish I could give you more on this, but I've got limited time today.

    Will try to consider the questions in more depth later and post at least my opinion.

    There are others more knowledgeable about the votes and where members of the House stand. I expect you will see input from others.

    Have a Great Day!!

    Judy :

    Thanks for your kindness.

    In Business or publishing for Business it is very useful to have an idea of what is going to happen. Or how it might happen.

    Whatever the Outcome YES or NO, after the result is known we have to analyze and study. So that we can predict results and events in the future.

    Not only votes in the House are important. American Feelings are also important. That is another variable for Business, Money and Prediction.

    Thanks a lot

    You're welcome. Most Americans positions according to polls and forums is that they are opposed to CAFTA and many feel they have been betrayed by this President.
