Matheson Votes with GOP on Spending Bill

Rep. Jim Matheson crosses the aisle to support a GOP-drafted spending bill that keeps the government operational until mid-December but defunds Obamacare. 

Reports ABC News:

Democratic Reps. Mike McIntyre of North Carolina and Jim Matheson of Utah crossed the aisle to vote in favor the continuing resolution while Republican Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia stood alone as the only GOP House member to vote against the resolution.

Both Democratic representatives have opposed the Affordable Care Act in the past, and saw Friday’s vote as a necessary step to ensure the government remains functional.
