All 45 Republicans voted for the bill.

“The muffled tongue of Big Ben tolled nine by the clock as the cortege left the palace, but on history's clock it was sunset, and the sun of the old world was setting in a dying blaze of splendor never to be seen again.”
The GOP could easily be licked next time.When Sherman arrived at Grant's headquarters later that evening, he found the general–broken sword and all– chewing on a soggy cigar in the rain, which had begun soaking the battlefield.'Well, Grant' Sherman said to his friend, 'We've had the devil's own day, haven't we?''Yes,' replied Grant, 'lick 'em tomorrow, though.'
