Senator Vitter (R-LA) last night offered an amendment on the Senate floor to repeal ObamaCare. The roll call vote is below. The vote was on the motion to table the amendment. If you table an amendment, you kill it or, literally, set it aside. So, a Yea vote means that Senator is against repeal. Not a single Democrat voted to repeal. Every Republican voted to repeal.
This vote ought to give some additional clarity for opponents running against Democratic Senators who have tried to have it both ways on ObamaCare. For example, Senator Vitter’s opponent in November, a House member who voted against ObamaCare on Sunday, has issued a statement that he is against repeal.
