The Libya “Present” Caucus

So: 225 House Republicans voted against approving the intervention in Libya, but only 144 voted to partially defund the war. Seventy Democrats voted against the intervention; only 36 voted to defund.

Who voted “no” both times? That is, who voted not to support the war, but not to cut funds? Among Republicans:
