The 23 Republicans who opposed Trump-backed budget deal

Nearly two dozen Republican senators joined with a handful of Democrats to oppose a two-year budget and debt ceiling deal.

The agreement passed the Senate in a 67-28 vote Thursday, setting top-line defense and nondefense spending numbers for the next two fiscal years and suspending the debt ceiling through 2021.

But the level of GOP support had been in question for days with Republican leaders stopping short of pledging to be able to get a majority of their 53 members. When the bill passed the House it garnered only 65 of the 197 House Republicans.
