Senate Refuses to Take Up-or-Down Vote on Marriage Amendment A proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution to define marriage as the union on one man and one woman was stopped before it could get an up-or-down vote. The measure fell short of the 60 votes needed to end debate and vote -- the final tally was 49-48. Focus on the Family Action Chairman James Dobson stated:
"Today's vote is yet another sign that far too many U.S. senators have abandoned even the appearance of voting the will of their constituents. The 48 senators who voted against the Marriage Protection Amendment today have left the definition of marriage at the mercy of activist courts intent on forcing a politically correct agenda on our nation.
