HR368, or Why they didn't ever vote

HR 368 vote chart

H.Res. 368: Relating to consideration of the joint resolution (H.J. Res. 59) making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014, and for other purposes
Relating to consideration of the joint resolution (H.J. Res. 59) making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014, and for other purposes.

Resolved, That the House hereby (1) takes from the Speaker's table the joint resolution (H.J. Res. 59) making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014, and for other purposes, with the House amendment to the Senate amendment thereto, (2) insists on its amendment, and (3) requests a conference with the Senate thereon.

Sec. 2. Any motion pursuant to clause 4 of rule XXII relating to House Joint Resolution 59 may be offered only by the Majority Leader or his designee.

This bill was introduced by Pete Sessions (R-TX) on Sep 30. It was passed on Oct 1, 228-199. Essentially it meant that only Eric Cantor or somebody he handpicked could bring a Senate bill for a clean Continuing Resolution - or any resolution - to the House floor for a vote.

Here are the 7 Democrats who voted FOR this:
  1. Barber AZ
  2. Barrow GA
  3. Maffei NY
  4. Maloney NY
  5. Matheson UT
  6. MacInyre NC
  7. Peterson MN
I'd love to know what the hell they were thinking.

And here are the 9 Republicans who voted NO:
  1. Bentivolio MI
  2. Broun GA
  3. Grimm NY
  4. Dent PA
  5. Jones NC
  6. King NY
  7. LoBiondo, NJ
  8. Massie, KY
  9. Wolf VA.
