The Senate cloture vote on the motion to proceed was 47 Ayes to 53 Nays, the necessary 60 votes needed to end the filibuster of the motion to proceed did not occur. The Senate has pulled S. 1776 from the floor and is considering an appropriations bill. NICE WORK!
Just in from Freedom Works VP for Policy Max Pappas:
“The Senate is going to vote cloture on S.1776 this afternoon around 2 pm.
Today’s cloture vote is key–if they get this through, they will have come through in buying off the doctors and will keep lying about the overhaul reducing the deficit.”
Here is the target list from Erick Erickson:
Here are the big targets today. I’ll add to it as field reports come in from activists:
Bob Bennett (UT) at 202-224-5444
Richard Burr (NC) at 202-224-3154
Jon Kyl (AZ) at 202-224-4521

Tell each one to oppose cloture on S. 1776. Supporting cloture is an endorsement of the Democrats’ strategy to pass Obamacare and will seriously increase the deficit
