Sneaky Pete - I was long on “None Vote Yes” and short on Budget Bill does not come up for a vote. However on the cash-out, I lost all the money on my long despite the fact that zero (0) Democratic senators voted for the bill. Please investigate and correct.

Senate Votes Down House Budget Plan

The Senate has rejected a controversial House budget plan for turning Medicare into a voucher-like program for future beneficiaries.

Five Republicans joined every Democrat in killing the measure, which calls for transforming Medicare into a program in which future beneficiaries — people now 54 years old and younger — would be given a subsidy to purchase health insurance rather than have the government directly pay hospital and doctor

Reid looks like he will force a vote on the House budget bill. I’m long on NO Dem votes, so I think the more interesting question is how many GOP Senators vote against the Ryan budget.

SneakyPete   •   Wed Apr 27 2011 at 12:18pm PDT

Better question could be is, how many Demovrats will vote FOR the Ryan budget. 23 Democratic Senate sets are up for re-election in 2012. Time will tell.

Apparently these answers are not mutually exclusive as they add up to >100. Are they all independent of each other? I just answered my own question by making a quick buy and sell. They are all independent.

I’m not too sure that is what you intended, because logically, all 4 answers are mutually exclusive. By that I mean that no two answers can be @ 100 in the end except for the probable unintended overlap between 1-3 and 3.

You are correct. I intended to have the answers to be independent of each other. I corrected ny error on the overlapping of answers. Thanks for your good comments. Good evening.

Figure it will come up for a vote as this is a perfect wedge issue for the Democrats to make the “moderate” Republicans take - do you vote to dismantle Medicare or do you invite a Teabagging in the primary.
