VOTE AGAINST ENGLISH?

Just a quick "Election Interlude" to publish the list of Senators that voted against English as a first language. I believe it is every voters responsibility to KNOW the voting records of their senators, representatives and candidates running for office. They are elected to vote your voice. Voting records are public record, JUST ASK or go look around. Think what you want.
This vote is an old one, May 2006.
