Bill passed 314-117. 71 Reps and 46 Dems voted against it.

149 Republicans voted for it. Which is 1 less than McCarthy promised. To which I say, not only is that about indictive of his performance as Speaker, but hey. He failed to get the votes he promised. If the Dems decide to cut the turd loose and not save him from his party then...

Either way the bill now goes to the Senate. I believe it also needs only a majority vote, so presuming that all Dems vote Yay then as long as both halves of Manchinema don't torpedo the bill then we won't need any Reps that voteing for it, won'despite it be ineededg but a welcome bit they donus.
