Help... I cannot find the roll call vote on a bill...

...and yes, I have looked. Hard. I get everything but the names of the yays and nays.
Anybody find that roll call vote?
"On October 10, the president signed into law H.R. 7846, the Veterans’ Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2022, which authorizes a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for veterans receiving Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation, clothing allowance, and survivors receiving dependency indemnity compensation payments."

1. I dont believe there was a recorded vote in the House or the Senate

It looks like it was brought up and passed in the Senate by unanimous consent by voice vote and in the House it was brought up under suspension of the rules which requires a 2/3 vote, but it looks that that also was ultimately was done by voice vote also.

2. That's the conclusion I came to also.

But, since it was a Dem-introduced bill, I'm sure there was Repub opposition.
I want those names.
I'm still looking.
Fucking sneaky goddam Repubs!

4. Sounds to me like some folks did not want their vote recorded....

...in a roll-call vote.
Or am I just looking for Repub intransigence?

5. I don't think so.

Any member can ask for a recorded vote. None did. Usually someone will be a pain in the ass and ask.
