After receiving the House approved stopgap spending measure that removed funds for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the Senate passed an amended version on a completely party-line vote, 54-44. Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Orrin G. Hatch of Utah were the only members who did not vote on the bill.
