So for those who are interested, the filibuster (a REAL filibuster, not one of those p***Y Republican fake threatened ones) combined with some confusion on the Republican side, caused the measure to fail.

And predictably, Rick Perry has called another special session for next week to try and push this thing through, even though if/when it passes, it will get struck down by the Supreme Court anyway.

What a waste of time and money. They might as well be voting to overturn the ACA like their Washington friends.
