Congress to meet today on Schiavo bill

This is a shame that Congress is spending time on a personal civil matter and not spending this time deciding how to BRING OUR TROOPS HOME!!!!

Members of Congress said Saturday that they have agreed on a compromise, bipartisan bill aimed at saving the life of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged woman whose feeding tube was disconnected Friday by order of a Florida court.

“It seems to me that we are at a point where we have no choice other than to ensure these parents, who are desperately seeking an opportunity to care for their daughter, have a chance to be heard in federal court,” Republican Rep. David Dreier of California said, referring to Mary and Bob Schindler, Schiavo’s parents.

The legislation—which must be voted on by the House and the Senate—would allow Schiavo’s parents, who have been waging their legal battles in state court, to take their case to a federal court in Florida.
