You can find all the information here. Let me sum up the most important points:

  • The motion needed 60 votes in favor to pass and it came so close with 59 votes in favor to pass
  • 45 senate republicans voted in favor with only 14 democrats voting in favor for the bill to pass
  • Even if the bill passed, President Barack Obama said he would veto the bill
  • The bill will be reintroduced in January, 2015
