House passes “conference” stimulus package

The House of Representatives has passed the version of the stimulus package agreed upon by the House-Senate conference. The vote was 246-183.

Reportedly, every Republican who participated in the vote voted “no.” Two Republicans did not vote.

Seven Dems voted no and one voted “present.”

The Senate may well pass the legislation this evening.

JOHN adds: No Republicans voted for the pork bill; the seven Democrats who voted against it were Bobby Bright of Alabama, Peter DeFazio of Oregon, Parker Griffith of Alabama, Walt Minnick of Idaho, Collin Peterson of Minnesota, Heath Shuler of North Carolina and Gene Taylor of Mississippi.
