Cloture FAILS in Senate Today - Thank Your Senators

From Eagle Forum:

Thank you for your calls and emails to your Senators opposing cloture on the Defense Authorization bill. Cloture failed 56-43

Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, voted against cloture so that it can be brought up again in the Lame Duck session after the election. His action underscores the plausibility that the three non-germane amendments that would have
  • forced taxpayers to pay for abortions on military bases
  • provided amnesty to millions of illegal aliens (the Dream Act)
  • undermined military readiness by repealing Congress’ 1993 law concerning homosexuals (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell),
was a political ploy meant to motivate the Democratic base.

Please THANK your Senators who voted “Nay” on cloture on the
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (S.3454).
