Sen. Jon Kyl Says if Senate Health Bill Passes Cloture Vote it is Virtually Impossible to Stop It - Video 11/20/09

Here is video of GOP Sen. Jon Kyl last night telling Jon Scott that if the Cloture vote today on the Senate Health Bill passes, it will be very difficult to stop it. Kyl said 97-98% of bills that pass a cloture vote are later passed by the Senate. It will most certainly be so in the case of the Senate Health Bill.

UPDATE: It does appear there will have to be a second cloture vote before final passage. So there is still some hope to prevent a bill from passing if all the Republicans hold firm and Joe Lieberman votes against the second cloture vote.

Probably true in that some can vote for cloture both to bring the bill to the floor for debate and cloture to bring the bill to a vote on passage. They can then vote against the final bill on passage because at that time only 50 votes plus Biden as a tie breaker will be needed.
