Vote Succeeds on Boehner’s Compromise Debt Bill 218-210

By | July 29, 2011

The bill passed with an eight vote margin: 218-210. Five democrats did not vote and in a show of ultra-partisanship, not a single democrat crossed the isle to vote yes.

From the right side of the House, 22 republicans voted against it and 218 for.  GOP no votes were: Amash, Bachmann, Broun(GA), Chaffetz, Cravaack, DesJarlais, Duncan (SC), Gowdy, Graves (GA), Huelskamp, Johnson (IL), Jordan, King (IA), Latham, Mack, Mulvaney, McClintock, Mulvaney, Paul, Southerland, Walsh (IL), Wilson (SC).

Now the bill will be hastily taken over to the Senate where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has promised to table it. The next move is on the Senate.
