I'm sick of Libs and their crap. Maybe some of you are not educated on this because you come here with liberal talking points or you just can't handle the truth but the media knows just who prevented this from passing and yet they still tell lies.
It was brought to the House floor under the rules of suspension, requiring it to garner two-thirds of the votes. However, with a vote of 258-154, the bill fell short of passage by 17 votes. Eleven House Democrats voted against the measure, seven House Democrats did not cast votes, and 21 Republicans voted for the benefits extension. However, House Democrats blamed Republicans for blocking the measure.
There it is, it was the Democrats that prevented it. They had 21 Republicans vote for it. It's the simple fact that they had 11 Democrats vote against it and 7 did not vote. (how convenient)That makes 18 votes. they only needed 17 to pass. Had they had all of those Democrat votes the bill would have passed the House.
How do you like dem apples? (no pun intended)
