Gang of Eight Bill Doesn’t Get 70 Votes, But it Gets 68

The Senate has, as expected, passed the Gang of Eight immigration “reform” bill, though not by the margin the supporters had predicted.

Nine Republicans joined the four on the Gang of Eight to pass the bill by a vote of 68-32.

The bill now goes to the House, where it’s predicted to have a much tougher time. Speaker of the House John Boehner, Ohio Republican, has been sending very mixed signals, promising a bill President Obama would sign by year’s end, while at the same time promising the House GOP that he wouldn’t bring an immigration bill to the floor unless a majority of them support it.
