  During consideration of this measure today, Senate also took the 
following action:
  By 10 yeas to 90 nays (Vote No. 172), three-fifths of those Senators 
duly chosen and sworn, not having voted in the affirmative, Senate 
rejected the motion to waive all applicable sections of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974 and applicable budget resolutions, 
with respect to Enzi (for Heller) Amendment No. 288 (to Amendment No, 
267), to express the sense of the Senate that Medicaid expansion is a 
priority and that Obamacare must be improved. Subsequently, the point 
of order that the amendment was in violation of section 313(b)(1)(A) of

thus fell.
