Manchin-Toomey Amendment fails to get required 60 votes in Senate



After all those months of bullying and boasting by the MSNBC crew and Piers Morgan on CNN telling us that major gun control changes were a CERTAINTY, they are probably glad that it's going to at least happen when most media is focused on Boston.

Vote now underway on Manchin-Toomey ... (4:05 PM EST)

Meh all of this distraction won't matter because we'll have on record who voted for what.

I don't think it has the votes to pass.

This woman announcing the votes...I can tell whether it will be a yes or no before she says it by her tone of voice.

Exactly . Lisa Murkowski had announced earlier she would vote NO and then voted AYE once failure was assured. She's a Dem at heart.
