Every single member of Congress – except for eight Republicans – voted to nix trade with Russia
The U.S. House of Representatives Thursday afternoon voted almost unanimously strip the “favored nation” status from Russia and suspend normal trade relations, allowing for higher tariffs to be imposed on Russian imports in response to Putin’s illegal war against Ukraine.
The vote was 424-8.
Here are the eight “no” votes – all from Republicans:
Lauren Boebert (CO)
Thomas Massie (KY)
Matt Gaetz (FL)
Andy Biggs (AZ)
Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA)
Dan Bishop (NC)
Chip Roy (TX)
Glenn Grothman (WI)
