The House has headed out on recess — they’re scheduled to return May 16 — after a busy week passing both an omnibus spending bill and a repeal and replace plan for the 2010 health care law. 

The Senate also passed the omnibus this week but debate remains on the health care plan. 

Here’s a look at the entire week in photos:
