The Vote Ends…

With the Vice President in the chair, the vote on final passage of H.R. 3590 is 60-39.

Like every other vote on moving it forward this week.

Senator Byrd cast his vote, “for his friend, Ted Kennedy.”

Harry Reid appeared to accidentally vote no, then throw up his hands and correct himself, to laughter throughout the chamber.

Bernie Sanders, late to the party, strode in, signaled his vote and took his seat to light applause. But he was called, anyway, stood, and said, “Yes.” Thought the vote is “Aye.”

So that’s it for now. The Senate immediately moved on to the debt ceiling hike, and when Congress returns next month, the ball will be in the House’s court, and the wrangling — potentially, anyway — starts all over again.
