The House voted Tuesday to remove the bust of Chief Justice Roger Taney and statues of Confederate President Jefferson Davies and others who supported the Confederacy from the U.S. Capitol.

Democrats were unanimous in their support for the bill and were joined by 67 Republicans, with the bill passed by a vote of 285-120.

The vote comes after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy accused Democrats on the House Floor of trying to hide their party’s ‘shameful’ racist past.

‘Let me state a simple fact. All the statues being removed by this bill are statues of Democrats,’ the Republican leader said, adding that he planned to vote in favor of the legislation. ‘I think the bill should go further. Maybe it’s time the Democrats change the name of their party.’
