FEDERAL: House Passes $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure Bill with Help from Republicans!

The next step for the Democrats is for the $1.7 trillion budget reconciliation bill to be brought to the House floor for a vote that needs only a majority count to pass it.  Only Senators Manchin and Sinema can stop its passage, if and when this particular bill reaches the Senate.

By a margin of 228 to 206, the House passed the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill late Friday night, November 5, 2021.  Here are the thirteen House Republicans who crossed the aisle and voted with 215 Democrats:

  1. Don Bacon, Nebraska
  2. Brian Fitzpatrick, Pennsylvania
  3. Andrew Garbarino, New York
  4. Anthony Gonzalez, Ohio
  5. John Katko, New York
  6. Adam Kinzinger, Illinois
  7. Nicole Malliotakis, New York
  8. David McKinley, West Virginia
  9. Tom Reed, New York
  10. Chris Smith, New Jersey
  11. Fred Upton, Michigan
  12. Jeff van Drew, New Jersey 
  13. Don Young, Alaska

Had these 13 Republicans not done so, the vote count would have been 215 to 219; the bill would have been defeated!

Given that 19 Republican Senators joined with all 50 Senate Democrats in passing the Senate bill back in August 2021, the legislation heads to President Biden’s desk for signature.

The next step for the Democrats is for the $1.7 trillion budget reconciliation bill to be brought to the House floor for a vote that needs only a majority count to pass it.  Only Senators Manchin and Sinema can stop its passage, if and when this particular bill reaches the Senate.

Wow!  How awful!
