The Viva Obamacare open line

Posted By on Wed, Apr 20, 2016 at 2:57 PM

The continuation of Obamcare's Medicaid expansion was approved by the bare minimum 27 votes in the Senate today. Surely that's worth a comment on the open line.

Also: our daily video.

PS: Bledsoe and King were the two nays. Voting present were Clark, Collins-Smith, Flippo, Rice and Stubblefield, same effect as a nay. Irwin did not vote, also same effect as a nay. Bart Hester and Blake Johnson provided the two votes on top of the first roll call with 25 to pass the measure.
