Senate Bill Passes First Major Vote by 82-15 Margin

Rating: 2 votes, 1.00 average.

The Senate just held a cloture vote to proceed with debate on S.744, the comprehensive immigration reform bill. This will allow the formal consideration of amendments to the bill before it goes for a final vote later in the month. The motion passed by a vote of 82-15. I'll have a break down of who voted how shortly. Keep in mind that just because a Senator votes to proceed with debate doesn't mean they'll vote in favor of the bill later on.


Interestingly, the new Senator from New Jersey voted Aye to proceed with the bill. Good news.  Thanks Senator Chiesa.


All the Democrats voted aye. Here are the Republicans who voted no:


Inhofe (OK)


Kirk (IL)


Lee (UT)


Risch (ID)


Scott (SC)


Sessions (AL)


Shelby (AL)


Vitter (LA)


Enzi (WY)


Barrasso (WY)


Crapo (ID)


Grassley (IA)


Roberts (KS)


Boozman (AR)


Cruz (TX)

    *Yawn* this is a vote just to proceed, not to clear the Senate.

    Really? No MS senator voted against cloture? Here in Singapore people are fascinated.

    Two of the non voting Senators eventually voted "Yes" and McCain would be a "yes" as well. So final tally 85-15. See below:

    Latinos in Illinois will teach Kirk a lesson in the next election.

    If Michelle Obama runs in 2016, Kirk is toast.
