In a move to protect the solvency of the Social Security program, Senator Fritz Hollings (D-SC) proposed an amendment to the debt limit bill that would have prevented spending cuts in the Social Security program for purposes of paying off the federal debt. Progressives voted in favor of the Hollings amendment as a way to protect Social Security benefits for future recipients. Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) motioned to table (or strike down) the Hollings proposal and the tabling motion passed on a 52-46 vote.
