Yesterday it was 47, Today 49 Republican Senators Voted not to Protect Medicare (Names & Numbers included)

January 9th 2017, at 6:08 pm, the United States Senate took a roll call vote on Amendment 20(Hirono/Donnelly Amendment) to Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 3. The purpose of this amendment was to keep the Senate from privatizing Medicare. In order for the Amendment to be in order, the Senate needed a 3/5ths majority to waive the Budget Act. The vote failed 49 in favor, 47 against. 47 Republican Senators passed up an opportunity to protect Medicare. 2 Republicans, 2 Independents and 45 Democrats voted to protect Medicare. 4 Senators did not vote

January 10th 2017, at 3:32 pm, 49 Republican Senators voted not to allow Senator Sanders amendment to go forward. 46 Democrats, 2 independents and 1 Republican voted to allow. The amendment needed 60 votes to pass. Senator Sanders amendment would have committed the Senate to helping Donald Trump keep his campaign promise not to cut Social Security or Medicare. Evidently, Republican Senators do not want to see Donald Trump keep his promises.

Those Senators who passed up an opportunity to protect Medicare, most for the second time in two days, are:

If one of these Senators is yours, please let him or her know that you took notice of this missed opportunity. Also, please express your desire that your Senator protect Medicare with his or her vote whenever there is an opportunity to do so.

  1. Your health care is to be replaced with the same health care plan you give/take from us. Do not sell us out. Shore up and bolster Medicare / Medicaid, do not weaken or remove/privatize it.
