Do you want to see how they voted?


"The 49-48 roll call by which the Senate passed an amendment to the proposed immigration overhaul that would end a temporary worker program after five years.

On this vote, a "yes" vote was a vote to end the program after five years and a "no" vote was a vote against adding this time limit to the program.

Voting "yes" were 37 Democrats, 11 Republicans and one independent.

Voting "no" were 10 Democrats, 37 Republicans and one independent.


Sessions (R) Yes; Shelby (R) Yes.>


Landrieu (D) Yes; Vitter (R) Yes.


Cochran (R) No; Lott (R) No.


Chambliss (R) No; Isakson (R) No.


Martinez (R) No; Nelson (D) Yes."

This was a key vote because it cracked the coalition, conspiracy (pick your word) to hold together core agreement to pass the bill. They are hoping to 'resolve' it, but haven't yet.

Did yours vote for or against? What do you think?


Unfortunately, this only has the votes from Alabama and its neighbors. When I see the others, I'll post it.

Update 2:

If one of you sees the full roll call first, could you post it? I know Feinstein voted against the amendment (to preserve the bargain to get Agjobs, but Boxer voted for it.)

Update 3:

Angela, are you kidding? McCain should take a break from the campaign trail to vote? Heaven forbid. (And given this legislation, REALLY heaven forbid...)

    There is a website that is refreshed every 20 minutes on Senate votes. Several different grouping options available. Three more votes since that one have been posted now.

    Mine voted no, of course. I guess they want perpetual cheap labor at the expense of our citizens. It's like being in a border state here.
