The people in the Physics Forum list have it backwards.

They understood that just fine. Yea meant kill the collider. That's what's bothering them. I see a lot of Republicans voting Yea.

No, a Yea vote was to table the Bumpers amendment, meaning to kill it. The vast majority of Republicans voted to table, with the Dems being split. Although the Senate voted to table the amendment, Congress, also controlled by Dems, did not.

The word "table" is a real slippery one, as most people seems to think it means a vote to keep an amendment than to kill it.
