Senate Vote: On Motion to Proceed to Health Care

Today, the U.S. Senate will vote on a motion to proceed to the health care legislation hammered out by Senate Republicans. Republicans need a simple majority to move forward. No Democrat or Independent is expected to vote in favor, and multiple Republicans are being eyed as possible nays, but with Capito, Paul and Heller all on board, it looks likely to pass.

Senate Minority Leader Schumer has ended his remarks, and Senate Majority Leader McConnell is talking. Vote is imminent (224pm)

Protesters are chanting “kill the bill” as roll is about to be called (230pm)

McCain, Johnson, Inhofe left to vote on the R side. 47-2 so far (241pm)

No shock, Inhofe is an aye, 48-2.

VP Pence will break the tie, 51-50. Two Rs nay, Murkowski and Collins.
