While you slept last night, did you know the Senate was in session till almost 3 AM?
After 10 hours, the Senate voted on 28 GOP amendments and rejected each and every one, including a Vitter amendment to spare mobile mammography units from punitive tax treatment.
Um, who’s the party of no now?
Among the more noteworthy votes taken so far:
Sen. Coburn’s attempt to bar Viagra for sex offenders was tabled by 57-42. Democrat Sens. Bayh and Nelson voted with the Republicans.
Sen. Vitter’s motion to repeal the Demcare takeover was tabled by 58-39.
Yes, the Vampire Congress is back in business again — shirking the glare of daylight as it tables Republican motion after motion. A final vote on the wreckonciliation bill is expected at around 3:00-6:00am Eastern Thursday morning.
Go here for the roll call votes.
