Senate to take up START pact Thursday

Washington (CNN) - The Senate will begin formal debate Thursday on a new nuclear arms treaty with Russia, a top presidential priority that conservative Republicans had tried to block in the current lame-duck session of Congress.

Senators voted 66-32 to take up the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, known as New START, Wednesday, which would bypass the process of reading the entire treaty out loud.

    I want to see which senators besides for Demint and Kyl that are going to vote against our national security interest. Be prepared to lose your job in 2012.
