    OK, is this a good thing or bad? By defeating these amendments by crucial senators who only agreed to vote for cloture if their amendments passed, are'nt we losing these senators now? Does'nt this mean we won't have cloture tomorrow?

    Does this mean Webb will vote "No" on cloture tomorrow?

    this whole thing is an Ochestra , we already see what's happening, some of them already stated that even if thier ammendments pass they are not sure if the will vote for the final bill, wait for more loss later today. They just all agree t continue the debate to do a public execution of the bill.

    Well....we can only hope and pray that you are wrong.

    I hope I'm wrong, becuase before they killed the bill a few weeks ago I really thought they will pass the bill I was wrong , I was optimistic then, but after reading the news everyday specailly about Sessions and DeMint and what I'm seeing now it doesn't look good. Letthe faith begin because hope is fading fast, goodluck to all of us who's life depend on this.

    You may be right. I have been reading that 6 senators who voted for colture might vote against it tomorrow. I guess we still pray for a miracle to happen tomorrow.

    This is too bad. The Webb amendment would have made the bill more balanced. I don't see how this terd they call legislation will pass.

    Although I don't agree with Siskind on everything, for the good of the nation we need to reach an agreement here and address this complex issue. Compromise is painful, but not compromising is almost always worse.

    CIR looks "deader than Elvis" now that the amendment to water down workplace status verification has passed. Republicans Pete Domenici, Kit Bond, Richard Burr, and Democrat Ben Nelson have publicly stated that they are going to change their vote to no. All it will take is one more senator to send this bill to the dustbin of history. Very likely given the passage of the amendment that guts workplace enforcement. Even Harry Reid has pretty much admitted defeat. Perhaps the Democrats got a little too greedy and blew it. Didn't they realize that this was one of those poison amendments that would scuttle this bill? Work place enforcement was a key component of the compromise. Too bad the house won't come up with a bill of their own once this one fails. Perhaps they could come up with something a little better.

    The workplace verification didn't pass. It is going to be debated. That's it. 60 votes to end debate and to move on to other amendments tomorrow. I don't believe Domenici said he would vote no. Am I wrong?

    Here is a quote from Domenici, I think it was from an AP story:

    "Republicans are getting hammered here at home and for what? Something that doesn't even have the chance of becoming law? No. This bill is going down. ... Why are we having all these big amendments? They (supporters) don't even know what's in this bill. We learned it's not even enforceable. I just don't think I can support this bill."

    Domenici added that a vote Tuesday night in the House GOP conference was very telling for him. Only 23 Republicans of 201 voted against a resolution of disapproval of the Senate measure.

    O.K. That's informative. Maybe the rumors of Domenici
    being crazy and senile are true. I know some of his pro-immigrant stances and speeches, and find it difficult to believe that he'll vote no,unless the whole thing were to collapse. We shall see.
