    I don't have a roll call list but I'm sure McCain and Graham were some of the deciding votes.

    Come on guys, we know this. Who else would have stabbed the GOP in the back?

    I know for sure that Graham voted for cloture.

    I was pleasantly surprised that Rubio voted against cloture.
    And that he voted.

    That's all I have found so far, unless others heard some of the others.

    Surprised he's playing the correct political move? Im not. Now he can say he voted against it. He will vote no on the bill itself as well because he knows they already have the voted to pass it. Same with Cruz

    Leadership and the neocons. They need their military spending, and don't give a $#@! about the next generation which will be bankrupted (and the future US military that will be correspondingly smaller)

    So this proves Rand's argument of an "holy alliance."
    If Rand does not win the Republican nomination, he should buck the controlled two party system and run as an Independent for President in 2016 and give Americans a real option to vote for.

    We are all born libertarians then something goes really wrong. Despite this truth, most people are still libertarians yet not know it.

    Pleasantly surprised? Don't be. There WILL be "2 snakes in the grass" that will vote for spending when the bill comes forward.

    unholy, but yes, proves Rand is 100% correct.

    My local news this morning said "Catastrophe was avoided" despite the efforts by Ted Cruz and Rand Paul to filibuster.

    Media would have hammered Cruz and Rand over this had they succeeded.

    It all sucks.

    Stabbed the GOP in the back? You mean done the GOP's bidding.

    Rand was the one stabbing the GOP in the back. More power to him.

    The debt is one of those things that just makes my blood boil. It's straight up theft on a monumental scale. The industrial military complex and special interest groups own this country, and the politicians are corrupt pieces of $#@!. Times like this I want to move to Texas and secede from the union

    Vitter must have gotten stuck in a tight place somewhere and couldn't make it out.

    It is kind of ironic:

    Getting paid to screw people, while screwing the people by not being there to screw them, all the while, screwing someone.

    They don't care about domestic spending either. (Unless they are being groomed for higher office and putting on a show, like Rubio and Cotton.)
