Two House Democrats vote against Biden’s $1.9 trillion relief bill

The House has voted to approve Biden’s $1.9 trillion pandemic aid package and it will now go to the Senate.

The vote tally was 219-212 and while no Republicans voted “yea” on the bill, two Democrats broke from their party and voted against the bill.

The two Democrats who voted against the bill were Kurt Schrader of Oregon and Jared Golden of Maine.

Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted “We just passed the Covid relief bill with $15 minimum wage increase. Disappointed that zero Republicans voted to provide support to Americans struggling across our country. We now wait to see what happens to the bill in the Senate next week.

Some Democrats expressed anger at the two Democrat lawmakers who voted against the bill.
