The House on Thursday approved a Democratic rules package with just a few defections from progressives despite concerns on the left about the resolution’s “pay-as-you-go” provision.
The rules were approved by a largely party-line vote of 234-197. The House will take up two additional portions of the package in coming days.
Three Republicans, Reps. Tom Reed and John Katko of New York and Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.) voted for the package. Three Democrats, Reps. Ro Khanna (Calif.), Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(N.Y.) voted against it.
