Chicago Democratic Congressman Mike Quigley.

Last night, fifty-seven House Democrats voted for the Republican spending bill. It handed Wall Street relief from the limited restrictions placed on them by the Frank-Dodd law passed following the 2008 financial crash. It also included a massive theft of private sector pensions.

The spending bill was supported by President Obama and could not have passed without Democratic Party votes.

Here are the Democrats who voted for it. The list includes Chicago Democrats Mike Quigley and Dan LIpinski.

  • Ron Barber, Arizona
  • John Barrow, Georgia
  • Ami Bera, California
  • Sanford D. Bishop Jr., Georgia
  • Timothy Bishop, New York
  • Robert Brady, Pennsylvania
  • Julia Brownley, California
  • Cheri Bustos, Illinois
  • John Carney, Delaware
  • William “Lacy” Clay Jr., Missouri
  • James E. Clyburn, South Carolina
  • Gerald “Jerry” E. Connolly, Virginia
  • Jim Costa, California
  • Joseph Crowley, New York
  • Henry Cuellar, Texas
  • Susan Davis, California
  • John Delaney, Maryland
  • John Dingell, Michigan
  • Sam Farr, California
