Immigration Bill Fails Cloture

We killed it, the Immigration fiasco is apparently been staked through the heart - for the second time. Thanks to Senator Nelson for having the common sense to vote against cloture.

"On the cloture vote — the test to end debate and move to passage — the Senate voted 46-53 not to carry the motion. Sixty votes were needed for forward progress. The tally is a turnaround of 18 votes from two days earlier. Six Democrats and 12 Republicans changed their votes to no from a Tuesday vote that allowed the Senate to take up amendments on the bill."
