Here Are The 58 Republicans Who Voted Against A $19.1 Billion Disaster Relief Bill

On Monday, 58 Republican lawmakers voted against a sweeping $19.1 billion disaster relief package because it doesn’t fund President Donald Trump’s border wall. However, the bill passes the House in a 354-58 vote and is now headed to the president’s desk.

Critics of the legislation — which provides funding to recovery efforts in areas affected by wildfires, hurricanes and flooding as well as block grants and nutrition assistance for Puerto Rico — cited concerns over its impact on the national debt and its lack o funding for Trump’s border wall as factors in their decision to vote against the measure.

“While I am happy the speaker chose to go back to regular procedure, I am still troubled that we passed $19.1 billion that is not paid for when we are racking up approximately $100 million an hour in national debt. At some point–before it is too late–Congress must get serious about restraining out-of-control spending,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), said in a statement.

Yup. Republicans are suddenly worried about the national debt after passing a sweeping tax cut for the wealthy.
