Those Pesky Amendments

OK, sorry I missed the evenings debate but I do have a family to attend to.
I am going to start posting the results of todays amendments, because I don't think any other blogger has them up yet. The formating isn't going to be the best, so please forgive me, and just be thankful I can bring you the rolls.

I already dealt with Boxer's trigger lock amendment. The next up is the Unemployment Compensation amendment.

This one was defeated 58-39. The defeat was actually closer than this vote indicates. Since it involved a waiver of the budget act it needed a 2/3 majority to pass - or 60 votes. It fell 2 votes short. I've already posted my thoughts on the extension of unemployment rights.
