10 Democrats break with leaders, support GOP bill to pay workers during the shutdown

Ten House Democrats voted with Republicans in favor of a motion to scrap a Democratic bill to fully fund the government and instead make sure federal workers are paid as the shutdown continues.

Democratic leaders decided to call up a bill Wednesday to fund the entire government. But just before the final vote, Republicans made a motion to erase that bill and instead vote on a measure to ensure federal workers are paid.

The GOP motion failed 200-215, and these sorts of last-minute motions fail every time.”
