Republican Traitors Help Senate Pass The Buck

September 27, 2013 by  

The Senate passed the buck back to the House today. Voting 54-44 on strict party lines, the Senate approved a stopgap spending plan that sets up a weekend showdown between Tea Party Republicans and GOP leaders in the House. Whether the Federal government shuts down Monday is now up to them. The cloture vote took place after 25 Republican Senators sided with Democrats and voted to end debate on the matter. That measure passed 79-19.

44 Republicans voted to rescind the defunding of Obamacare:

Lamar Alexander of Tennessee
Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire
John Barrasso of Wyoming
Roy Blunt of Missouri
