Default Changing Job, Porting I140, CIR

My priority date is October 2010 in EB2-India category. I have been offered a position as a Clinical Specialist-Physical Therapy position by another hospital. The pay is better, great education assistance program with a decent sign on bonus. The job duties are >50% same, basically I140 can be ported. I don't see my current employer attempting to revoke my 140. Physical Therapist are exempt from filing labour, since it is a national shortage profession. Thus I see myself being able to port I140 in next six months.

However, all this talk of Immigration reform(CIR) makes me uneasy. What if rules change and I get eligible to file I485 and I have'nt completed the process of I140 porting yet. I have missed the boat several times in the past. I came to the country in 2005 with a Masters degree in Orthopoedic Physical Therapy; my last I140 was denied because of job posting issues- I lost my EAD and status-then. I had to start all over.

Do you think, I am being too paranoid ? Should I hold on to my current job? Please advice.

You should be able to do your 140 in premium, and get a response in 2 weeks. This CIR is going to take its own sweet time, you might be good even in the regular mode. But if you can spare 1000 or so green bills, why take the chance.

Thanks,
I did not think of I140 premium processing. I wonder what others think. I don't want to take a step in the wrong direction.Am I missing anything?
