Who voted against the short-term spending bill?

The U.S. House of Representatives approved a six-month stopgap government funding bill Thursday that, at least temporarily, sets aside partisan bickering over budget issues ahead of the November elections.

More than 300 lawmakers voted to approve the plan, but 91 lawmakers voted no, according to The Washington Post Congressional Votes Database. Seventy Republicans voted against the plan, as did 21 Democrats.

Among the no votes were three Republicans running for Senate seats — Reps. Rick Berg (R-N.D.), Connie Mack (R-Fla.) and Dennis Rehberg (R-Mont.) — several Republicans and Democrats in close reelection races — Reps. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), Jim Matheson (D-Utah) and Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) — and several members either retiring or who lost primary battles, including Reps. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) and Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.).

Most of the Republicans who voted against the plan believe the $1.047 trillion price tag is too high. Some more moderate Democrats — including Reps. Larry Kissell (R-N.C.), Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) and Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) — agree with the Republicans. But other Democrats voted against the plan, because they believe it doesn’t spend enough money. That group includes Reps. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) and Danny Davis (D-Ill.).

Nine House lawmakers did not vote Thursday — including Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), who aides say has returned to his Washington home, but not yet shown up for work after returning from treatment for depression.
