PARTISAN FOR PARTISANSHIP SAKE:

Senate overwhelmingly approves 'doc fix' (eter Sullivan and Sarah Ferris, 04/14/15, The Hill)

 
The Senate on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a $200 billion Medicare reform package that will end a two-decade-old headache for Congress known as the "doc fix."
 
The rare bipartisan bill, which passed 92-8, marks one of the biggest achievements yet from the newly GOP-controlled Congress. It will now head to President Obama, who has promised to sign the bill. [...]
 
Eight senators opposed the bill, including Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Florida) who are both seeking the presidency in 2016.
