Topline: A single House Republican, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., said Friday that he would insist on a traditional vote for the $2 trillion stimulus bill making its way through Congress, delaying the legislation’s passage. 

  • Party leaders had hoped to pass the bill by voice vote or unanimous consent, both measures that do not require the full House to be present for a vote, but that option is now could be out the window unless Massie changes his mind.
