Kerry Vote Watch
After a week’s vacation, the Senate reconvened last week for a three-day workweek, holding seven floor votes in the process. No surprise: Kerry missed them all bringing his “missed vote” percentage up to 87%. He missed a vote to support U.S. troops by approving funds for an emergency fund for Iraq and Afghanistan; it still passed 95-0-5. But Kerry also missed a vote on a Democrat-sponsored amendment to increase funding to handle nuclear waste. That amendment was rejected 48-48-4, with Senator Splunge and John “Boy Wonder” Edwards out on the campaign trail.
