    Northern republicans (including Mitt Romney's dad) did a lot of heavy lifting.

    The original House version:
    Southern Democrats: 7–87   (7–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10   (0–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 145–9   (94–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138–24   (85–15%)

    The Senate version:
    Southern Democrats: 1–20   (5–95%) (only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1   (0–100%) (John Tower of Texas)
    Northern Democrats: 45–1   (98–2%) (only Robert Byrd of West Virginia voted against)
    Northern Republicans: 27–5   (84–16%)

    Southerners...not so much
