The Senate is still holding the tax deal cloture vote open to allow senators time to get back to Washington, but moments ago the bill got the 60 votes necessary to move forward. So far, only 6 senators, all Democrats, have voted against it: Bingaman (N.M), Feingold (Wisc.), Gillibrand (N.Y.), Leahy (Vt.), Sanders (Vt.), Udall (Colo.).
