You must be asking the liberals because the republicans don't pay any attention to government proceedings.
Merkley is my guy! Oregon is 100% progressive.

Gillibrand and Schumer approved --which is exactly what I thought they'd do! I'm grateful and proud to be represented by these two wonderful Senators!

As Gran Pat already said, the "fine upstanding" (pure sarcasm!) senators from the "ever progressive front-runner" (more sarcasm!) state of texas (small "t" to go with the small brains!) chose to vote "nay" (I wonder if it sounded like "neigh"--but I don't mean to demean any four-legged beings). These two (cornyn and hutchison) make me sick--never once have they voted in a fair, progressive manner--can't help but wonder who is paying them!!

Mine voted for it but failed to stop the travesty to military retirees by allowing a tripling of pharmacy costs. I hope they fix that in conference as the house version is much kinder to veterans.

No surprise that my dorkheads voted against it - I did let them know how disappointed I am and that I will remember come election time....

Noted and emails sent. Of course my Dem was for and the Repug was against. Go figure.

Having two Republican Senators who consistently
vote the opposite of my wishes, I was simply going
to write "badly" here. Being a tad optimistic, I took
a look at the data first, and, so I'm back to:

How the U.S. Senators from California voted: voted
� Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) Y
� Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) Y

Lucky me, I have two yummy Senators! lol.

Just a note: Boxer, Feinstein and Pelosi: all 3 live within the San Francisco Bay area.

Ty, Nancy.

Once again I am proud to have Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell as my Senators...and I am happy to say I cannot remember a time they didn't vote the way I hoped...

Did anyone else look at those states in red and mutter the same thing I did ? thought so ;-)

How could I ever expect either of my scumbag Sen's to vote to end this travesty? Kyl's leaving the Senate since I guess he's gotten all the connections he ever wanted and will be making even more Big Bucks as a former Sen. And, McShame? You'd think that since he'd "been there-was a POW-done that," he might vote to end it....but all those corporate war companies with their millions for his campaign chest have the last word. Bought and paid for. He & Kyl have both gotten my letters, though.
