51 for ending subsidies: 49 Democrats 2 Republicans<quoted text>
RealDave that’s the process it was defeated by a Bi-Partisan vote 52/48 if you don’t like the process than change it!!
47 against ending them: 4 Democrats 45 Republicans
Votes needed to end debate 60. Why 60:? Because Republicans filibustered.
Now you cam pretend that the Democrats did not support ending these subsidies al you want.
But everyone else knows the Republicans basically voted to keep oilfield subsidies.
