Senators Who Crossed Party Lines on Contraception Amendment -- PICTURES

March 1, 2012

As controversy continues over the "contraception mandate," the amendment by Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., went to a vote on Thursday. Blunt's amendment would have attached a provision to a highway bill that would allow religious institutions to "opt out" of the federal health care mandate for their employees for religious reasons. The amendment was defeated by a vote of 51-48, but four senators broke ranks. Here are the senators who crossed party lines during the vote.
