vote to block the bill

\ “A count of states with unanimous votes by both senators from each state reveals that the vote fell along the old Union/Confederacy line. 9 out of 14 states that unanimously voted no represent the original Confederate states, and 12 out of 17 states that unanimously voted yes represent the original Union states. This is the 21st century, yet sadly, we appear to have regressed back to the days of the Civil War,” ILW said in its daily update e-mail.\
