    Most no votes were Western senators. Glad to see that even Murray and Cantwell voted against. And lookie there: Brian Schatz casts his first vote and it's solidly Progressive!

    •  Careful (0+ / 0-)

      About judging Senators on single issues like this. The Montana Senators are also really good on civil liberties issues, but few would call them "solidly Progressive".

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

        There's a bit of controversy about his appointment to replace Inouye, with some contending he was the wrong choice because he isn't the person Inouye himself requested - Colleen Hanabusa. However, he is already demonstrating himself to be a strong progressive with this vote and his comments about the importance of climate change.
