Full List of Republican Senators Who Voted to Pass $1.7T Omnibus Bill -AND- Full List of House Republicans Who Voted to Pass $1.7Tn Omnibus Bill

The Senate voted to pass a $1.66 trillion omnibus spending bill Thursday afternoon with only a day remaining before a deadline that could partially shut down the government.
Eighteen Republicans joined all 48 Democrats and two independents in passing the bill, which must still pass through the House before it arrives on President Joe Biden's desk to be signed into law. The final vote was 68-29.
If approved, the bill will extend government funding through September 30, 2023. It had been delayed for weeks as lawmakers argued over its proposals, which included funding around immigration, emergency disaster assistance and military aid to Ukraine.
Before the Senate voted, former President Donald Trump slammed members of the Republican party for their potential help in passing the bill in a video message posted to Truth Social. Trump specifically targeted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who voted in favor of the bill.
Trump had urged all members of his party to vote against the bill and called the bill a "disaster" for the Republican Party since Republican senators could have stopped it. Trump also criticized Democrats for pushing the bill through Congress before Republicans take control of the House in the new year. --->READ MORE HERE
