Politics: House Resolution 63 Passes 246-182

See the roll call on the vote.

The italic names appear to be the Democrats while the regular typeface are the Republicans.

17 Republicans crossed over to vote yes. 2 Democrats voted no. I wonder who are Marshall and Taylor? Definitely profiles in courage for those two!

6 didn't vote. I didn't recognize their names except for Hastert! Is that the former Speaker of the House Hastert? I wonder why he didn't vote? In my mind, it would not be a profile in courage to duck the vote. Now, if they are in the hospital or something then I could understand. Anyone knows the House rules? Do they have to be physically present to vote?
