WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The Senate on Wednesday took the first of several procedural votes designed to enact funding for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Democrats who lead the Senate are aiming to replace a House-passed funding bill with a measure that maintains money for President Barack Obama's health law and keeps the government open until Nov. 15. The Senate's Wednesday afternoon vote was on proceeding to debate the House-passed bill.

Link Says that All 100 Senators voted to procede.

What’s that about?

This cloture vote didn’t matter.
It’s the next cloture vote that needs to be stopped.

Cruz wants it done Friday...but of course Reid will push it to Sat....when nobody will be watching the slight of hands.

It’s the cloture vote on Friday or Saturday that is important.

That one is to end debate- and accept Harry’s sheme to reinsert funding for Obamacare.

This one is just to let the debate on the bill start.

If Repulicans vote to end the debate...they have voted FOR the decline of America as we know it via Obamacare..which will then pass.

Someone is going to have to explain to me if the plan is to make them get 60, why we wouldn’t fight every vote?

How much you want to bet that if McConnell has the votes, Cornyn will be allowed to weasal out of his position and make it look like he is supporting Cruz by voting against Cloture?

Then he can run back to his constituents and say he stood with Cruz when the vote mattered?

Harry only needs 7 votes from them.
Every vulnerable Republican can make a fake vote for Cruz and go home and tell their constituents what wonderful fighters against Obamacare they are.

Heck, that’s the “DC way”!

Ayotte joined the human race? Or is she just totally asea with all of the twists and turns?

I vote Ayotte and Flake as the biggest traitors in the US Senate. At least with McCain, we know where he's at....looney tunes land. JMHO

Reid is giving McConnell cover so McConnell can support Obamacare.

McConnell wants to support Obamacare. Make no mistake about it.

Lately I
I’ve been heading for a breakdown
Every time I leave my house
Well, it feels just like a shake down

Between street sweepers and the pushers are the lawyers
Who may as well be butchered
Between the small timing hustlers who all
Seem to feed upon each other

Oh, God, why you been
Hanging out in that ol’ violin
While I’ve been waiting for you
To pull me through?

Lately I
Every time I try to lie down
While my mind just lets away
I can’t even close my eyes now

Between the big fish and ambition and the lovers
Using words as ammunition
Between the wood planks, I’ve been pacing endless
Impossible dream that I’ve been chasing

Oh, God, why you been
Hanging out in that ol’ violin
While I’ve been waiting for you
To pull me through?

Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God, why you been
Hanging out in that ol’ violin
While I’ve been waiting for you
To pull me through?

Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God

We need to target wishy-washy senators such as Mary Landrieu.

She is up for re-election.

Cruz and company must target moderate Democrats who are feeling heat on Obamacare.

Beware of Reid's tricks - his tricks (and no treats) will probably happen before Halloween.

“Cornie was just on Hannity sounding like mclame.”

Very disingenuous with his last statement: “We can’t fund the government.”

They can DEMAND a certain standard to how it’s funded. Duh!

And Cornyn just outright admitted on Hannity that he thinks it is more important to allow cloture and allow Dems to pass it, because he thinks it is better politically for the Repubs. I knew it was what he was thinking but astonished that he came out and admitted it.

Politics is more important than saving our country from this fiasco leading to government controlled socialized medicine.

Thank you very little, Senator “Neville” Vichy Cornyn.

He may find that not only do the Repubs lose the Obamacare battle, they also lose politically.

The cloture vote may get 25 but ill be surprised if any more and expect less. Even Rand Paul has said they will not shut it down over this. The fight has been decided. Obamacare is fully implemented in a week.

They threw us under the bus yet again!.....there never was a fight aside from last night...Cruz tried to bring it on home and the GOP would have nothing to do with it....

The party is long gone ...but then we knew when McCain handed it all over to Obama we were pretty much done then...it takes more than Cruz to rip out the deep roots these politicians have and believe they are entitiled, but there is a glimmer of hope that maybe one day ahead... “one man plus God equals an Army”.....but that fight will be to the death of any freedom we ever thought we might have left.

If it's any comfort at all....Cornazz has been getting sah-lambed on social media and every website I've been on, today.

He's a slippery weasel who I cannot wait to help his opponent. I told his Houston office I'd vote for a Dim before I EVER vote for him, again...Same Diff.

Praying there's a good, conservative opponent.

That's what they all are saying. But, they won't have a chance to after Reid strips it out of the CR. What Cruz is trying to prevent is allowing the Ghoul to do that.

Add Thune.

Niels Lesniewski @nielslesniewski

“Sen. Thune will not vote to block the House-passed CR defunding Obamacare, he told S.D. reporters.

So, Sen. Toomey is announcing opposition to cloture on the CR for the normal reasons (i.e. Reid’s going to fill the tree) “
