39. Read the Senate rule...
Edited on Thu Oct-07-10 02:37 PM by Ozymanithrax
Only one Senator is necessary to stop Unanimous consent. You don't have to know who was there. It was "Unanimous." Every one of them, from the best to the worst, voted for it. The voice vote in congress was iffy, but still constitutional. No treason was involved.
