It goes down by five votes in the Senate, meaning that the Democratic defectors (Baucus, Tester, Pryor,
Tester (Ben) Nelson, Hagan, not counting the absent Manchin) could have made the difference. Of course, in a sane world 55-41 is a victory, not a defeat, but we’re not talking about a sane world: we’re talking about the United States Senate.
Still, basically a party-line vote, with almost all the Dems voting yes and almost all the Reeps (save Lugar, Bennett, and Murkowski) voting no. Too bad so few of the Party of God bother to read the Bible.
And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers.
