Deutch only Florida congressman to skip shutdown vote


The controversial government shutdown vote in both the Senate and House came to pass on Valentine’s Day, and both chambers voted overwhelming to pass bills that partially funded President Trump’s border wall.

There were only (4) members of the U.S. House of Representatives that did not vote, one of them was Democrat Congressman Ted Deutch.

Deutch, who like most House Democrats, has been very vocal in called on President Trump to end the government shutdown they claim he owns.

But when the time came to vote on a bipartisan bill to end the “Trump shutdown,” Deutch failed to cast his vote.
