The Stimulus Bill Clears the House

The vote was 244 to 188. Eleven Democrats crossed the aisle. No Republicans crossed.
So much for the president’s urge for bi-partisan support.
The Democrats voted 244 to 11. The GOP voted 0 to 177. One GOP member didn’t vote.
The “nay” Democrats were:
Bright (AL)
Griffith (AL)
Taylor (MS)
Shuler (NC)
Cooper (TN)
Boyd (FL)
Ellsworth (IN)
Kanjorski (PA)
Kratovil (MD)
Minnick (ID)
Peterson (MN)
Now…it’s off to the Senate. (Here’s some help if you need a reminder of how the system works).
