There were more than 150 "no" votes among Republican members of Congress in Wednesday night's voting, but the four GOP members in Washington state all supported the bill. Washington was the largest state in the country in which all members of its delegation voted in favor of the legislation to reopen government and approve more borrowing so America could pay its bills.
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers says the government cannot work unless both parties talk and work together to find common ground and common sense solutions. She says House Republicans remain united despite splitting votes on Wednesday's legislation.
