Given how much the "Cromnibus" spending bill was talked about over the last few days and the last-minute Senate vote last night approving the bill, an observer may be wondering.."how did my Senator vote?"
Well, wonder no more!
Thanks to the good folks at govtrack.us, you can see the state-by-state breakdown for how each of the 96 senators on the floor last night actually voted.
Sites like GovTrack are an invaluable source for those who want to not only remain informed about how folks in Congress are actually voting, but also providing a handy fact-checking tool for the next election cycle who the usual game of finger-point on who voted for what begins..
For my part, I found it quite interesting that both current U.S. Senators from my home state of Iowa (Republican Chuck Grassley and Democrat Todd Harkin) voted "nay" on the bill, though I suspect for VERY different reasons..
Remember folks, an informed electorate is a dangerous electorate, if you're a member of Congress that is..
