This week, the House of Representatives passed a bill banning Russian oil and approving additional sanctions against the Kremlin amid its attack on Ukraine.

The bill received wide bipartisan support with 414 lawmakers voting in favor.

Here are the 17 lawmakers who voted against the bill.

Democrats

  • Cori Bush (MO)
  • Ilhan Omar (MN)

Republicans

  • Andy Biggs (AZ)
  • Paul Gosar (AZ)

    “For a year we have been living with an ‘America last administration.’ This bill is a case in point on how Americans are the last priority and the Democrats will bend over to help anyone but the voters here,” Gosar said. 
  • Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA)
  • Louie Gohmert (TX)

    “President Biden’s outrageously calloused original decision on his first day to make America and Europe dependent on Russia, Iran and Venezuela for oil while he chases a green new nightmare has made the world dangerous for democracy while funding those who will end our freedom,” Gohmert said. 
  • Chip Roy (TX)
  • Dan Bishop (N.C.)
  • Glenn Grothman (WI)
  • Tom Tiffany (WI)
  • Lauren Boebert (CO)
  • Matt Gaetz (FL)

    “I will not join them. Biden’s plan to replace Russian oil with Venezuelan or Iranian oil is needlessly foolish. It will make Americans poorer and less safe. My compassion for Ukrainians won’t force my hand to hurt my own people,” Gaetz said.  
  • Bill Posey (FL)
  • Clay Higgins (La.)
  • Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.)
  • Madison Cawthorn (N.C.)

    “The House had an opportunity tonight to stand up to Putin with strong legislation blocking Russian oil AND implementing America first energy policies,” Cawthorne said. “Instead, the ‘Suspending Energy Imports from Russia Act’ was nothing more than virtue signaling by Nancy Pelosi and House Dems.”
  • Thomas Massie (KY)
