Source: U.S. Senate Voting Records
The highly nonrandom geographic distribution of the vote is highly interesting. Also: of the 25 Senators voting against, 15 were Republican, 8 were Democrat, and 1 was independent. In Texas, Cornyn and Hutchison both voted for it (that's for you Murphy), as did both (Democrat) Senators from my state (CA), as did the conservative Democrat and liberal Republican from my home state (Pennsylvania). I'm happy to see someone making a stand for fiscal conservatism, wherever they're from and whatever their party afiliation.
