There wasn’t much Senate Republicans could do in order to change the destiny of the two year, $40.11 billion budget adopted by the Senate Tuesday morning. But they tried offering 18 amendments, 17 of which were defeated along party lines and one which was ruled out of order.

The debate lasted for more than 11 hours until after 3:10 a.m., but in the end 19 Democratic Senators voted in favor of it.
