And Brian Kennedy, spokesman to GOP House Leader John Boehner, notes jubilantly:

The cosmetic adjustments Democrats made to the SCHIP bill changed one GOP vote: Rep. Vern Ehlers (R-MI) switched from a YES on the last Dem bill to a NO today. Not quite the result the majority had intended.

· Not a single Republican changed their vote from NO to yes.

· With a 265-142 vote, Republicans maintained a veto-sustaining margin, despite CA absences due to wildfires.
