House Republicans narrowly scraped together enough votes to pass a procedural step Thursday morning to advance the monstrous 2,232-page $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill toward passage. Conservative opposition to the omnibus forced House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., to ask Democrats for help to pass the procedural rules vote necessary before they can consider the omnibus.
The procedural vote passed 211-207. Only 25 House Republicans had enough spine to stand up to leadership and vote no. Here are their names:

It remains to be seen who will vote against final passage of the omnibus in the House.
The final vote took place at 12:59 p.m. ET. As expected, many more congressmen voted against the final bill. View the full roll call here.
