Senate tables GOP's 'Cut, Cap, and Balance' measure

As expected, the Senate this morning voted to table its consideration of HR 2560 -- the so-called "Cut, Cap, and Balance Act" -- by a 51-46 vote

It was a strictly party-line vote, with all "yes" coming from Democrats or Dem-leaning indies, and all "no" votes coming from Republicans.

After the vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced that the Senate would not work this weekend, and that he and the Republican leader would attend the "Gang of Six" meeting later in the morning.
