Washington Post said:
The final vote count was 54 to 42, with Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), who supports the legislation, taking the procedural step of voting against the bill so that he can reintroduce it at a later time.
In a news conference following the vote, top Democrats vowed to reintroduce the bill this year.
Nice trick, to reintroduce the bill with some measure of success they need a majority. The Reps just gave the Dems the theme for the midterms....
