The House of Representatives has passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) that funds the federal government until mid-December by a vote of 230 to 189. The stop-gap spending measure also contains language to defund ObamaCare, the very controversial 2010 healthcare law. As you can see above, it was mostly a party-line vote, though two Democrats voted for the CR, while one Republican — Rep. Scott Rigell (R-VA) — voted against it. You can read his explanation for his “no” vote here. Reps. Jim Matheson (D-UT) and Mike McIntyre (D-NC) were the Democrats who voted for the CR.
