(Worthy News) – A $1.9 billion post-Jan. 6 riot security funding bill passed by just one vote Thursday in the Democratic-led House, with two Republican members missing the vote.
Member of the House Democrats’ progressive wing including Rep. Ilhan Omar joined Republican members in voting against the bill, which passed 213-212. However, progressive stalwarts Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib, of Michigan, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of New York, voted present.
House members are able to vote by proxy in lieu of in-person voting due to rule changes passed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite this, two Republican members, Rep. John Carter, of Texas, and Rep. Daniel Webster, of Florida, missed the vote, according to the roll call. Every other Republican voted against the measure. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
