In a 280-142 vote, the House passed a $120-billion Iraq war funding bill that contains no timeline to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq. The bill is now sent to the Senate for final passage, “expected later Thursday night.”

UPDATE: This bill also includes a $2.10 increase in the minimum wage, the first raise in a decade.

UPDATE II: Roll call on the Iraq vote is HERE. Eighty-six Democrats joined 194 Republicans and voted for the bill. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was the only member of House leadership of either party to vote against the war funding.
