Senate Tax Bill passes 51-49 at 1:50am EST

And the rich keep getting richer...


Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) and Mark Warner (D-Virginia) vote *against* amendment to Senate tax bill...

...that would require any future cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security as a result of the Senate tax bill be passed with at least 67 votes. In other words, these two senators joined Republicans in making it easier for Congress to cut funding to these programs in the future. Thanks guys, great job...

EDIT: And Tom Carper (D-Delaware) too, making 3 Democratic Senators to vote no...wtf...

EDIT 2: Votes are up on Senate.gov
