No surprise here: The Senate failed by nine votes to cut off extended debate on the Democrats' $60 billion infrastructure plan.
President Barack Obama had touted the proposal Wednesday in a speech in front of Washington's Key Bridge.
But Republicans Thursday objected to the Democrats' plan to pay for the program, a 0.7 percent surcharagae on millionaires.
The vote to cut off debate was 51to 49. Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., and Joseph Lieberman, Ind.-Conn., joined 47 Republicans in voting for extended debate. 60 votes were needed to cut it off.
