Cloture vote by Republicans no surprise
The democrat party, the party of ‘Spend, spend, spend’ has a willing accomplice it seems in the current crop of Senate Republicans. The Politico is reporting a cloture vote, a vote to close debate and move the bill out for a full vote, passed by a 91 to 1 majority! (which can be found HERE). Modern Republicans will not get back to limited, smaller, responsible government until the electorate revolts and stops accepting or supporting moderates. Ejecting the social conservatives from the party is NOT the answer. Romney won independents by a double digit margin and still lost because he was not courting those same social conservatives. If the Republican party does not wake up to the reality of this fact they either do not want to or are not wise enough to see the handwriting on the wall.
