D.C. – The House on Friday voted 228-206 to pass a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill after months of tense negotiations, sending the bipartisan measure to President Joe Biden's desk for his signature.


While the democrats managed to unify House progressives and moderates to hold a vote on the Senate-passed bill, not all members of the party ultimately supported it.


Six progressives who have called for both – the infrastructure and the separate economic package, known as the Build Back Better Act, to move together – voted "no" on the legislation.


The six House Democrats who voted against the bill are:
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York

  • Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York

  • Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota

  • Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri

  • Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts

  • Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan


The 13 Republicans who vote in support of the bill are:
  • Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey

  • Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey

  • Rep. Andrew Garbarino of New York

  • Rep. John Katko of New York

  • Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York

  • Rep. Tom Reed of New York

  • Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania

  • Rep. David McKinley of West Virginia

  • Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio

  • Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska

  • Fred Upton of Michigan

  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois

  • Rep. Don Young of Alaska
