Social Security sense of the Senate amendment fails

Amendment Number: S.Amdt. 145 to to S.Con.Res. 18 (Budget resolution FY2006 )

Statement of Purpose: To express the sense of the Senate that Congress should reject any Social Security plan that requires deep benefit cuts or a massive increase in debt.

It needed 51 votes to pass, with the exception of 5 Republicans who did the right thing it was a straight party line vote for deep benefit cuts and massive debt by the Republicans in the Senate.
