On a mostly party-line vote, the Senate rejected Sen. Roy Blunt’s (R-MO) amendment to exempt religious employers from covering services that contradict their teachings. Retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine is the only Republican who voted against the measure. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia joined Ben Nelson of Nebraska, an original co-sponsor, as the Democrats who voted for it.
