« Social Security Reform Thursday: Week Fifty -- A Vote, At Last. | WILLisms.com | Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 298 -- The Irony Of Blue States. »

53 Senators Vote To Raid Social Security.

Senator DeMint's basic Social Security reform measure failed.

53 Senators voted against it.
46 voted for it.
1 didn't vote.

Most Republicans voted to stop the raid. Zero Democrats voted to do so. The fake Independent Jim Jeffords, of course, voted nay.

The Republican nays:

Burns (R-MT)
Chafee (R-RI)
Collins (R-ME)
Domenici (R-NM)
Lugar (R-IN)
Smith (R-OR)
Snowe (R-ME)
Talent (R-MO)

George Voinovich (R-OH) failed to cast a vote either way.

How pathetic.

Not a single one of these Republican nay voters deserves reelection.

Here is the roll call vote.

How infuriating.

From the Democrats, you expect this kind of head-in-the-sand idiocy. Increasingly, and unfortunately, we can also expect this kind of intransigence from Senate Republicans.

~15% of the Senate Republican caucus voted to raid Social Security. That's just unacceptable. Why should conservative voters even bother voting Republican majorities into office? What is the point?

Something's got to change, here.

GOP, heal thyself.

NO WAY...Those idiots need a spine! I know some people, I would like to see run for office. Obviously they don't think we are serious. OR, they don't want to take on the task!...I think we all need to write to these spineless Senators! INCONSIDERATE OF OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS! I can't believe it! What a nightmare...
