And this is what it looked like:

The U.S. Senate narrowly voted to move forward Tuesday with debating a plan to repeal and replace "Obamacare," and Sen. Pat Toomey quickly released a statement to let his constituents know why he voted in favor of the move.Like this one:
The Pennsylvania Republican posted his statement on Twitter: "I voted to open debate on reforming our health care system because we cannot continue on the current path without disastrous consequences. Today, we are one step closer to replacing Obamacare and putting Medicaid on a sustainable trajectory to ensure it will be available for future generations."
Toomey's statemement received more than 700 replies on Twitter with only a handful in support of the senator's decision.
And that was one of the nice ones.Shame on you, @SenToomey, for moving forward on a bill that has no CBO score. Your constituents' lives are on the line. Pack your bags.— Grim reality. Check. (@manicoreganic) July 25, 2017
One senator gets spontaneous applause for voting against Trumpcare while another gets very little that isn't whatever the opposite of applause would be called for supporting it.
A lesson for a Monday morning, I suppose.
I wonder if Pat Toomey is watching.
