Shutdown Over

About twelve hours ago, President Obama signed a bill into law that re-opened the federal government and allowed the debt ceiling to be raised until 15 Jan 2014, when again we can go into crisis mode and have another measuring contest to see who’s got the longer legislative gusto. In the Senate, the bill to resume normal operations of government at sequestration levels was passed with cross-party support, 81-18, with all 18 voting against being Republicans. In the House, the bill was passed with cross-party support as well, 285-144, with all 144 voting against being Republicans. With that in mind, I’ve created a list of all representatives and senators who voted against reopening the normal functions of government. Remember these names as those who held our nation’s credit hostage when you go to vote in November next year.

Here are the Senators and Representatives who voted against the measure:
