    Basically, not much has changed. After , and IF, the 65 member committee (still to be formed) decides to approve the impeachment proceedings, the Lower House will have to approve the motion by a 2/3 majority for the case to carry-on to the Senate. And the Senate will decide, by a simple majority what to do about the fat cow. The Judiciary recess that has just started will give fatty some more breathing space, but meanwhile the economy will continue to go down the drain. At least Levy finally realized he couldn't win. For a supposedly intelligent person, it took 347 days too long to wake up. No matter what he proposed, starting with cutting costs, it was obvious that fatty and the PT would do anything to not have to cut into their own flesh....they would always support an incresase in taxes, in order to allow them to perpetuate their unrealistic, condemned to fail, socialist bs dream.
