Following are the Senate Members Who Stood With Us To The End Against Medicaid Expansion (Private Option) on the enabling legislation HB1143 and the Appropriation HB1219:  The appropriation bill required 3/4 vote, 27 votes in the Senate.  Do note that No Democrats voted against either of these bills. So all the Democrats were for the bill. (Either that or Beebe told them to vote this way.) If you find any errors, let me know. This email is posted at this link:
