In a statement on the Senate floor this morning, Republican leader Mitch McConnell signaled he'd vote for cloture for the immigration bill. But he also suggested the bill needs to be amended.
"The Gang of Eight has done its work. Now its time for the Gang of 100 to do its work for the entire Senate to have its say on this issue, and see if we can do something to improve the status quo. At the risk of stating the obvious, this bill has serious flaws," McConnell said, then suggesting he'd vote for cloture, the motion to proceed.
Ill vote to debate it and for the opportunity to amend it,

Yup! This is the kind of stuff we need to be reminded about!! Hope yes, but vote no is how these people pretend to be conservatives but help to advance liberalism.
Just keep telling people HE HAS BEEN IN OFFICE SINCE 1985!!!
that is like ancient history to most
McConnell is a duplicitous weasel. A vote for closure IS A VOTE FOR AMNESTY (because it ENABLES the passage of amnesty) even for those who later vote against the actual bill for political cover. I wish the “scoring” organizations would mark a vote for closure as a mark FOR amnesty—that would help restore a modicum of truth in these “ratings”. As it is, I think a number of these organizations are engaged in creating “cover” for RINOs by allowing them to have a higher conservative rating than they deserve.
Then the “RINO Protective” posters come on here and quote the RINOs’ untruthful “conservative” ratings as proof that they are conservative.
Ya think the Prez might intentionally be trying to bankrupt the U.S. beyond repair. I do.
Yea, right Mitch. You admit is has “serious” flaws, and yet you will allow it to come up for a vote?
Get another Tea Party GOP candidate ready and waiting in the wings.
2014 - ROUTE THE VIPERS OUT...ALL OF THEM!
Of course he is.
Waiting for the “if all the purists would just vote for RINOs, none of this stuff would happen” crowd.
Yep....the old “show vote” tactic. Vote for cloture thereby cutting off a chance to kill a treasonous bill before it gets to the floor....and then vote against it in the floor vote knowing the gesture is moot.
My two traitor Senators here in Georgia are experts at that. They come home afterwards and trumpet “I voted against it!”
Typical RINO doublespeak.
