Today, 42 Senators demonstrated that they take their oaths of office seriously. The Senate defeated a cloture motion on legislation that would have given the District of Columbia a Congressman. The legislation was facially unconstitutional, and its proponents are enemies of the Constitution. Unfortunatley, seven Republicans voted with every Democrat save Max Baucus and Robert Byrd to violate the Constitution. It is beyond appauling that so few members of the Senate, including seven Republicans, take their oaths of office so lightly.
