Senators voted 59-41 to pass the resolution of disapproval blocking Trump’s declaration. Underscoring the broad base of concern over Trump’s actions within the Republican caucus, 12 GOP senators broke rank and voted with all the Democrats.

Nice. So we only have 41 strict anti-constitutionalists who believe in a dictatorship left in the Senate.

The Furrowed Brow Caucus is a little larger this time, but they know they are ultimately protected by the veto.

I probably missed it being used before, but this is the first time I've noticed the phrase "Furrowed Brow Caucus". Love it. Perfect.

Here in TN, Lamar Alexander didn’t so much break ranks with other Republicans as remember he’s retiring. He’s transitioning into the Bob Corker role. Meanwhile, Sen. Blackburn is as reliable as ever of course.
