Breaking: Senate passes $410 Billion Omnibus…Amendment to save DC Vouchers fails….Sessions e-verify amendment fails…

Update; Looks like Alexander voted yes, Wicker MS, Murkowski AK, Bond MO, Cochran (R-MS),  Shelby (R-AL), and the usual suspects,
Snowe (R-ME), Specter (R-PA),

Collins,R- ME, VOTED NO!! so did Dems Baygh of Indiana (our pick for HRC VP), and Feingold WI, McCaskill MO of all people voted nay, but Reid got the MO GOP senators to vote aye to cover her axx,

The Corner has it. Also Amendment votes:

Update: Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) amendment on e-verify also came very close — it was tabled on a 50-47 vote. By contrast, the amendment to save the District of Columbia’s Opportunity Scholarship program was soundly defeated.

The cloture vote will be available here in a few minutes.

What total hypocrites the Obamas are if they let those kids at Sidwell lose their vouchers when their own daughters attend that school and Teh One had a scholarship to an exclusive Hawaiian Prep School which just today he credited for having given him the ability to hold his office…. and I have to believe Obama could have called Durbin of all people his former co Senator of Illinois and had him table the bill…just wrong..
