Senate rules require a 60-vote majority to close debate and then a vote after that to approve the bill itself. And since a couple R's and Mittens are currently quarantined, at least 10 Dems have to cross over to get the 60.

This is another one of those times the Senate should, but of course fucking won't, force the dems to stand up there and actually filibuster.
