Shamnesty bill and amendment get the votes for cloture

Despite the floods of calls from patriot groups, NumbersUSA, and bloggers opposed to immigration amnesty bill S 744, the Senate today voted in late afternoon, 67-32 for Cloture to cut off debate on a bill amendment that nobody has read, moving the bill closer to passage.  

From The Hill, here are the shamnesty RINOs, including members of the Gang of 8, who voted YES:
John McCain (Ariz.)
Lindsey Graham (S.C.)
Marco Rubio (Fla.)
Jeff Flake (Ariz.)
Bob Corker (Tenn.)
Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)
Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)
Jeff Chiesa (N.J.)
Susan Collins (Maine)
Orrin Hatch (Utah)
Dean Heller (Nev.)
Mark Kirk (Ill.)
John Hoeven (N.D.)
Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
Roger Wicker (Miss.). 
Note that Sen. Portman voted against the bill. Ohio calls from Tea Party Patriots made a difference, but we'll have to keep at it. CALL SENATE OFFICES TOMORROW: (202) 224-3121.
