103 Republicans defect from Ryan, Trump as House passes $1.2 trillion spending bill

More than 100 House Republicans broke from their leadership on Wednesday and voted against a $1.2 trillion spending bill to keep the government open through September, which passed thanks to Democrats’ near-unanimous support.

The bill passed 309-118, in a vote that saw 103 Republican oppose the measure. Most Republicans did vote for the measure, but the caucus was split significantly, 132-103. Democrats in much more in favor of the bill, as 178 voted for it, and just 15 voted against it.

That opposition from Republicans reflects anger over how the bill was negotiated, which resulted in a final product that didn’t include money for President Trump’s border wall, and included funding for other Democratic priorities. Many Republicans groused that the bill was written as if Republicans weren’t in charge of the House, Senate and White House.

Nonetheless, it now heads to the Senate, where it is expected to be cleared for President Trump’s signature before the May 5 deadline.

    It’s amazing how people complain that a bill passed with large majority in the house is some kind of betrayal. These congressmen were voted into office and voted freely. If anyone should be unhappy it should be Ryan since members of his party didn’t follow his lead. Incase anyone here has forgotten we live in a republic. The idea that there a small group should control congress without regard for the other party or even those that voted against them is un-American. Not all republicans are conservative, some are in fact moderates. Ryan was elected by the house to lead it and he did just that. The majority in the house has spoken and the bill passed. There is no shutdown. Long live our democracy.

  • TAM44

    We need the names of those traitors who stood with that back stabbing paul ryan. Time to drain the swamp in 2018 and get these un-American cut throats out of DC. These rino’s are closet democrats all the way.

  • justinwachin

    Of course the Democrats were happy. Although they lost the election they got a spending bill which protected all of their pet causes. Over the past few election cycles we have given the Republicans the power they requested in return for a promise they would enact conservative legislation. If this is the best Paul Ryan can do maybe we need to replace him and the rest of these double talking politicians.

  • Buford

    The democrat wolves in baggy ellie pants have outed themselves and we know who stands against us. The democrat party as we knew it no longer exists, and now the GOP has stuck its neck on the chopping block with gusto and relish. If the people ever get gumption, tyrants will lose the battle of wills.

  • barbarakelly

    It is time to KICK PAUL RYAN OUTOF THE HOUSE.!!!!!!!!!! He did this once before during obama’s last budget bill. NO more from him. HOUSE TAKE HIM OUT OF THE HEAD OF HOUSE. HE IS A TRAITOR TO THE PEOPLE.!!!!!

  • Walter Flatt

    OF COURSE THERE WAS MONEY FOR BORDER SECURITY AND IT CAN BE SPENT ON THE WALL AND YOU HAD BETTER BET THERE WILL BE A WALL.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST. PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON THERE.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

  • James Maxwell

    The traitors are now identified and they need to be replaced as soon as
    possible. This is not a spending bill it is a “GIFT” to the far left Democratic
    Socialist and their ilk to help destroy the United States and further encroach
    upon our freedoms and liberty. IF the Senate Controlled Congress passes
    this for President Trumps signature he needs to refuse to sign this. This
    is a total waste of TAX PAYER money and a slap in the face of all the
    American Voters who put the GOP in office. They did not negotiate
    anything just took the Democrat Socialist spending bill and rubber stamped
    it blocking any and all efforts to rein in excessive spending. For the GOP
    it is clear that Paul Ryan is not a Republican by any stretch of the imagination
    and is nothing but an avowed Democrat Socialist pretending to support
    the GOP ideals to get elected. His immediate recall and removal should
    be first on the Republicans party members for failure to follow thru and
    support our President Donald J. Trump. His vile actions will keep
    Obama Care, Planned Murderhood of children and bring in millions
    of Criminal to our nation from abroad. Remove this POS from his
    position immediately and began to act like the people we though we
    elected to help guide our nation in these trouble times.

    Those 103 must all be up for reelection in 2018 and voted “NO” knowing full well that the $1.2 trillion democrat budget would pass anyway. Now they can tell their constituents they voted against it; “wink wink”. This is the crap Ryan and the other rinos are famous for. Remember how Boehner and McConnell used to play “good cop bad cop” over the budget all the time? The democommies got everything they wanted despite the Repuklicans controlling both chambers. Those of us that put TRump in office should not forget this betrayal come 2018.

    • Ted Crawford

      “…not forget this betrayal come 2018”
      I know I won’t! If, in 2018 all I have to choose from is a Democrat and a member of the Freedom Caucus, I’ll be voting for the Democrat!
      Petulant Idealism is NOT a sustainable, productive ideology!

      • Buford

        It must be. Works for Socialists. Only the Republic loses and never gains from compromise.

        • Ted Crawford

          Certainly true of this, forced compromise. President Trump had NO choice in this case.
          The petulant quislings of the Freedom Caucus have created such an environment of “Resist”, within the Republican party, in keeping with Schumer and Pelosi.
          President Trump was forced to surrender to the Progressives! He knew his administration could not survive the shut down following on the heels of his embarrassing defeat with the health care bill.
          The Health care bill that passed the House today, given it was structured to please the morons of the FC, will emerge from the Senate virtually unrecognizable. Once again the FC will reject the Senate bill. It is highly unlikely that any progress will be made with respect to health care in this 115th. Congress.
          To date the House has passed only two pieces of legislation. One, the health care bill, will not survive and the other, the Continuing Resolution, is horrific! Way to go, Freedom Caucus!

  • Ramon1710 .

    Ah, the look of joy on Ryan’s face says it all, “I’ve bullshitted my way into passing this! I’ll bet my good benefactor George Soros gives me even more next time!”

  • Dr. Mike Reeder

    Can you believe this? Lincoln said, “A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand”. How can a government continually vote itself further into debt? The answer is simple, it can’t! Folks if I were you I would pull ALL my money out of the stock market, be 401K, 503B or just plain savings and put it into precious metals. This house is divided and it cannot stand! Shame on the Repugnicans! It’s vital that government services GO AWAY! We need to learn how to get along on our own, w/o government assistance. Pretty soon the government will be telling us how to run EVERYTHING when they can’t even keep themselves solvent.

  • charles becker

    Paul Ryan, the biggest traitor in office. We need a re-call.

    • maxx

      Sadly, there is no way to recall a member of Congress. They have to lose the election and considering that rinos receive cross-over votes from democrats conservatives are fighting a losing battle unless your state has “closed elections” where people must officially register with a particular party. For a politician it guarantees a lifetime job.

      • CharlieSeattle

        He, he, he, there is no ……..LEGAL way!

  • Not_Easily_Impressed

    Spock would be ashamed. Perhaps conservatives will be able to find a silver lining in this thundercloud.

    • Ramon1710 .

      No doubt he would. This is the sort of stupid sell-out spending bill that only Guinan and Dumb Wesley Crusher (as Patrick Stewart’s Captain Stubing affectionately nicknamed him) could come up with.

  • Peter Pihun

    I fully support those republicans who stood up for the taxpayers and not the lazy bastards who are supported by all democrats and the remaining Rino’s.

    • maxx

      Peter, you must be a rookie. You need to understand what those 103 really did in the end. Politics is a very dirty and dishonest business and those 103 knew exactly what they needed to do to protect themselves in 2018 by playing charades with their constituents. Some were definitely members of the Freedom Caucus but that was only 45. The rest are rinos taking care of “number one”.

      • Allan Artman

        That is so true, they just played the numbers so they would not be blamed! Fire them all!

      132 RINO Traitors! We will remember!

    • Reasoned thinker

      Peter Pihun — What I suggest is that the NAMES of the Republicans who “defected” be publicized, and then provided to ALL of their respective constituents, so if further questions to constituents’ questions are raised, then the “defectors” can be properly directed . . . and answers thereby provided.

  • Andy Palmer

    Perhaps nothing points to the failure of Paul Ryan as Speaker better than the 103 Republicans who voted against this absurd spending bill. It’s time for the House Republicans to kick Ryan to a back bench and elect a Speaker who supports a conservative agenda. Paul Ryan gave Obama everything he wanted while Obama was in office and this spending bill continues that atrocity.

  • Bob S

    They voted and we’ll vote too. Vote ’em out.

  • bob breglio

    When Republican have a majority, we are supposed to pass OUR priorities, not those of the liberal loon left. We need to fund the border wall and STOP funding planned parenthood, neither of which happened with this bill. We need to act like we are in charge and stop negotiating with the loons.

    • maxx

      All of the Rinos remain in office because they receive cross-over votes from democrats. You need to understand that democrats appreciate rinos far more than if a democrat occupies the seat. They know how a democrat will vote but with the votes they get from the rinos they have control not the Repuklicans.

  • bobnstuff

    OMG, the Democrats got something they wanted. We can’t have that. Who cares if they also represent voters and the programs were important. We can’t let the Democrats have anything. Having Democrats and Republicans working together to get things done might cause the end of the world. Maybe this is what “Make America Great Again” really means, a congress that actually works.

    • Retired

      Since when is Blackmail by Schumer and Pelosi working together , there was more for the Demon Rats that you support than the Republicans you hate ????

      • bobnstuff

        It’s the same thing that the republicans did with the ACA except the democrats honor there deals and will follow through if they are given what they want. You do remember that the democrats in congress were voted there and represent people just like the republicans. Also since when is asking for something in return for your vote blackmail?

        • Retired

          You have not been listening to Schumer and Pelosi have you ???? You just keep right on proving whose side you are on .

          • bobnstuff

            I’m not on any side other then the side of our country. This isn’t some game that has sides and that winning is the only goal. This is a country with people who’s lives matter. It’s people like you that are destroying it. I guess you forgot that we are one nation and that we are all on the same team. This budget is supported by the majority of people in the country. These is something for everyone in it.

          • Retired

            You should tell that to your Democrat friends ,Schumer- Pelosi – Warren and Feinstein . You do not know what is all in those many pages , last count was 3000 . Didn’t hear today how many pages it contains .

          • bobnstuff

            The democrats have crossed lines a lot more often the republicans in the last few years. What’s your big deal about 3000 pages? That’s not even twice as many as The Lord of the Rings”

          • Retired

            You is one sick puppet just like Obozo .

          • bobnstuff

            I guess you don’t read. 3000 pages isn’t even 5 Stephen King books. The average reader can read it in about 40 hours.

          • Retired

            Tell that to our elected that do not read the bill except for the part they are interested in . Forgot about your friend Pelosi we must pass it to find out what is in it .

          • bobnstuff

            They have people to read the bills and tell them what in them. We know that Trump never reads the bills, in fact he reads very little. If it’s not on TV he doesn’t hear about it. I have theory about Trump and reading. I think he is learning disabled and has problem reading, that’s why he doesn’t like tella prompters. The way he talks also give a clue. This isn’t a rip on him and in fact it’s a sign of just how smart he is to get where he is with this problem.

          • Retired

            You are just one sick Democrat puppy .
