    Which 32 Senate Democrats Just Sold You Out to Give Wall Street a CRomnibus Christmas?

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/12/14/1351689/-Which-32-Senate-Democrats-Just-Sold-You-Out-to-Give-Wall-Street-a-CRomnibus-Christmas

    32 members of the Democratic caucus and 24 Republicans supported it. 22 members of the Democratic caucus and 18 Republicans opposed it.

    So who were the naughty 32?

    Tammy Baldwin (D-WI)
    Mark Begich (D-AK)
    Michael Bennet (D-CO)
    Ben Cardin (D-MD)
    Tom Carper (D-DE)
    Bob Casey (D-PA)
    Chris Coons (D-DE)
    Joe Donnelly (D-IN)
    Dick Durbin (D-IL)
    Kay Hagan (D-NC)
    Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
    Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND)
    Tim Johnson (D-SD)
    Tim Kaine (D-VA)
    Angus King (I-ME)
    Mary Landrieu (D-LA)
    Pat Leahy (D-VT)
    Barbara Mikulski (D-MD)
    Chris Murphy (D-CT)
    Patty Murray (D-WA)
    Bill Nelson (D-FL)
    Mark Pryor (D-AR)
    Harry Reid (D-NV)
    Jay Rockefeller (D-WV)
    Brian Schatz (D-HI)
    Chuck Schumer (D-NY)
    Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)
    Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)
    Mark Udall (D-CO)
    Tom Udall (D-NM)
    John Walsh (D-MT)
    Mark Warner (D-VA)

    Many of them were unsurprising, but I was particularly disappointed in Baldwin, Murphy, and Schatz, who are all freshmen with fairly progressive voting records so far.

    And which 22 were nice?

    Richard Blumenthal (D-CT)
    Cory Booker (D-NJ)
    Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
    Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
    Maria Cantwell (D-WA)
    Al Franken (D-MN)
    Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
    Tom Harkin (D-IA)
    Mazie Hirono (D-HI)
    Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
    Carl Levin (D-MI)
    Joe Manchin (D-WV)
    Ed Markey (D-MA)
    Claire McCaskill (D-MO)
    Bob Menendez (D-NJ)
    Jeff Merkley (D-OR)
    Jack Reed (D-RI)
    Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
    Jon Tester (D-MT)
    Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
    Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
    Ron Wyden (D-OR)

    Glad the two NJ Senators voted "NO"! Fine you want to make risky derivative bets and reap the rewards, DO NOT expect the US taxpayers to backstop it when it turns rancid! Pussy bankers!

    This event seems like a rare opportunity for republicans to come out smelling like roses, but they are fucking it up with the mudslinging, and will miss out on the political points.
