The "good guy list" and the "bad guy list"

Many Republican senators pledged to defund Obamacare, only to side with Harry Reid and block efforts to defund Obamacare with a cloture vote.   Republicans, who make up 46 Senators had a clear opportunity to defund Obamacare.   The House of Representatives had passed a version of the budget that stripped the funding for Obamacare.   Harry Reid would have needed 60 votes to restore funding for Obamacare in the budget had the cloture motion failed.   That means that only 41 votes would have been needed to completely derail Obamacare.   Instead 25 Republicans sided with Harry Reid and essentially voted in favor of funding Obamacare.

These are the 25 Republicans (RINOs) who voted with Reid to invoke cloture thus allowing funding for Obamacare;
Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)
John Barrasso (R-WY)
Roy Blunt (R-MO)
John Boozman (R-AR)
Richard Burr (R-NC)
Saxby Chambliss (R-GA)
Jeff Chiesa (R-NJ)
Daniel Coats (R-IN)
Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Thad Cochran (R-MS)
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Bob Corker (R-TN)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
John Hoeven (R-ND)
Johnny Isakson (R-GA)
Mike Johanns (R-NE)
Mark Kirk (R-IL)
Ron Johnson (R-WI)
John McCain (R-AZ)
Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
John Thune (R-SD)
Roger Wicker (R-MS)

These are the 19 Republican (the good guys) senators who voted against cloture thus attempting to defund Obamacare;
Mike Crapo (R-ID)
Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Mike Enzi (R-WY)
Deb Fischer (R-NE)
