The massive $1 trillion “CRomnibus” spending bill squeaked through the U.S. House of Representatives with a 219-206 vote on Thursday night.

Among those voting against the unpopular spending bill were 67 Republicans, including conservative favorites like Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Dave Brat (R-Va.)

That means more Democrats than Republicans opposed the spending bill as only 57 Democrats voted for it.

The Senate still needs to vote on the bill before it heads to President Barack Obama's desk, but Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) reportedly said there would be no vote on Thursday. In order to avoid a government shutdown, the House also approved a two-day stop gap budget to give the Senate time to vote.
