Which Senate Dems Just Voted to Spend Even More Money on Weapons?

Yesterday, the Senate began voting on amendments to the FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Rob Portman (R-OH) offered an amendment to add $371 million for procurement and for research, development, test, and evaluation to increase the lethality of Stryker armed vehicles. These are designed for ground warfare, and the Pentagon seems to want them so that they can make the civil war in Urakine even bloodier.

The amendment passed 61 to 34.

10 members of the Democratic caucus joined the 51 Republicans in attendance in voting for it:

Michael Bennet (D-CO)
Maria Cantwell (D-WA)
Bob Casey (D-PA)
Joe Donnelly (D-IN)
Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
Mazie Hirono (D-HI)
Angus King (I-ME)
Patty Murray (D-WA)
Gary Peters (D-MI)
Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)
