Senate Democrats who voted against tax increases
The vote was 53 to 36, on a bill adopted by the House on Thursday that would end the cuts on income above $250,000 a year for couples and $200,000 a year for individuals.
Republicans voted unanimously against the House-passed bill, and they were joined by four Democrats — Senators Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, Ben Nelson of Nebraska, and Jim Webb of Virginia — as well as by Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, independent of Connecticut. . . .
The roll call on the so-called millionaire’s tax, which also needed 60 votes to advance, was 53 to 37 with Republicans again unanimously opposed and joined this time by Mr. Feingold, Mr. Lieberman, and Senators Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, Tom Harkin of Iowa and John D. Rockefeller IV of West Virginia. . . .
