Andrew Roth - November 17th, 2009
The Senate voted on a Tom Coburn amendment yesterday that would have increased funding for the "care and payments to caregivers of disabled veterans, offset by a reduction in funding for earmarks not requested by the president."
The amendment was defeated 24-69. Most of the Democrats voted NO, but so did these wayward Republicans:
Alexander, L. (TN)
Bennett, R. (UT)
Collins, S. (ME)
Murkowski, L. (AK)
