Update: Another surprise: Every last Democrat voted yes on Reid’s amendment to strip out the House’s defunding language. The final tally was 54/44. Verrrry risky of Pryor, Hagan, etc, to put their names to this. Maybe they decided that, since Reid needed at least some of their votes, it’d be unfair if they didn’t all take the plunge together.

Update: Same margin on the final CR, 54/44 on a straight party line. Now back to Boehner and the House.

Update: Whoops, typo in the headline. It’s re-funding that passed, not defunding, as I had it earlier. Sorry about that.

Then it happened, Reid strips language defunding ObamaCare

The Senate on Friday voted to strip language defunding ObamaCare from a stopgap spending measure on Friday after a bipartisan vote to proceed with the measure.

The Senate voted on party lines to remove the ObamaCare language, in a 54-44 vote. GOP Sens. Orrin Hatch (Utah) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.) were absent for the vote.

The ObamaCare vote came after the Senate voted to proceed in a 79-19 vote, with 25 Republicans voting in favor of moving forward and 19 voting against.

The GOP votes represented a rejection of Sen. Ted Cruz’s arguments that Republicans would be helping Democrats in moving the bill forward.
