Roll Call - 162 GOP Congressmen voted against funding Govt

October 18, 2013. Washington. With 24 hours until the US federal government began defaulting on debt payments, Congress quickly voted to restore funding and raise the nation’s debt limit again. Contrary to the President’s promise, the law is filled with billions in earmarks and pork and even a fortune in free money for one of the richest families in government.

The final vote to end the shutdown and raise the debt limit was closer than most expected. Image courtesy of CSPAN.

While all 366 Congressional Democrats voted in lock step to restore and increase the government’s spending, 162 Republicans voted to keep the government shut down and the nation’s massive 17 trillion dollar debt where it’s at. As the GOP establishment capitulated to Democrats and the President, two-thirds of House Republicans and almost half of Senate Republicans stood firm and voted ‘No’.



Roll Call – end shutdown and increase debt limit

Below are the lists of House and Senate Republicans who voted against the pork-filled law Wednesday that ended the shutdown and raised the nation’s spending limit. 18 Senate Republicans voted ‘No’ on ending the shutdown and raising the debt limit (from the Washington Post):

Richard Shelby (R-AL)

Marco Rubio (R-FL)

Charles Grassley (R-IA)

Mike Crapo (R-ID)

Jim Risch (R-ID)

Pat Roberts (R-KS)

Rand Paul (R-KY)

David Vitter (R-LA)

Dean Heller (R-NV)

Tom Coburn (R-OK)

Tim Scott (R-SC)

Ted Cruz (R-TX)

John Cornyn (R-TX)

Mike Lee (R-UT)

Ron Johnson (R-WI)

Mike Enzi (R-WY)



While the above list represents roughly 40% of all Senate Republicans, almost two-thirds of House Republicans voted against the law.
