Dust Settles After Annual Senate “Vote-A-Rama”

Senators started voting on dozens of amendments to the Republican budget proposal around noon Thursday, and it probably will not have wrapped up by early Friday morning. The amendments are aimed at drawing attention to senators’ pet political causes, forcing others to weigh in on big debates and most notably, causing headaches for the members of the opposing political party.

Those political headaches could resonate in both the presidential campaign and the battle for the Senate. Four Republican senators are either eying White House bids or have already launched them. And Democrats are trying to retake the Senate majority they lost in the last election.
