Yet 60 votes were needed.  Proving once more we need a filibuster proof Senate where the majority does not get undercut by a minority…..  Deadlock continues in the worst Congress ever… as usual.

Hung up at 58-39  the final vote was cast by,,,, Harry Reid, in the negative… making it 58-40…

A procedural vote to end the filibuster was undertaken immediately thereafter.
