The Corner

CR Passes, 260-167

The House just passed the Boehner-White House spending deal, to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year. Fifty-nine Republicans voted against the measure. On the Democratic side, 81 members supported the package. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the party leader, voted nay; Democratic whip Steny Hoyer voted in favor. You can view the full roll call here.

UPDATE I: How about 60? According to the House record, six members missed the vote, including Rep. Louie Gohmert (R., Texas). He quickly said that he would have voted “no.”
