32. The Wyden Amendment never actually even came to a vote

It wad s ruled out of order. It is very disingenuous for Booker and Casey (and any other of the 13 Dems who voted against the Klobuchar Amendment) to say they voted Yes on the actual Wyden Amendment. They simply voted to allow it to be voted on via an exemption to the budgeting rules. If it had been granted that exception, they would have voted No.

Also, Klobuchar's Amendment language about drug importation was originally introduced in November, NOT 10 minutes before the vote.
