ABC News' Z. Byron Wolf reports: Senate Democrats are taking their lumps in the reconciliation vote-a-rama that started around 5:30pm today. But so far, they’re sticking together. We’re an hour in and already Democrats have had to vote: 1. In favor of cutting Medicare – 56-42
2. In favor of keeping voted to keep the special deals for Louisiana, Montana and other states – 54-43
3. Against an amendment to exempt anyone making less than $250,000 from having to pay any taxes associated with the legislation – 56-43. Republicans' full list of amendments – currently there are 20, but we’re told more will be added – is HERE. At between three and six amendments an hour, with 17 left, this will take a minimum of four more hours if no other amendments are added.
