A Vote For Cloture Is A Vote For Amnesty
First Vote Passes 64-35

NRO lists those claiming to be against the bill but who will nevertheless vote for cloture and thus pass it.

Hot Air gives it one last go with an attack ad.

It seems to be over. As Congress has never been known for its bravery in defying strong public opinion, the question has to be asked: What, precisely, has put such stiffness in the spines of Gregg, Burr, etc?

They're not campaigning for the bill, so they don't seem to believe in it. And yet they're voting for it.

Apparently they answer to a cash-money constituency.

As this is prima facie evidence of corruption, these tools have to be removed from office ASAP just as a matter of general political cleanliness.

Correction: I'm told that Cochran and Hatch actually voted against this, so I took their names off the list of politicians whose spines seem to have been stiffened by greenbacks. I took Bond off too, as he will, supposedly, vote against this when it gets to the final closure vote.
