The House today passed the official Republican budget offered by Paul Ryan by a 228 to 191 vote. The ten Republicans who voted no mostly opposed it from the right. This followed a 414 to 0 rejection of President Obama’s budget and a 382-38 rejection of a bipartisan plan based loosely on the Simpson-Bowles recommendations.
The House Democrats offered their version of a budget, which was defeated by 262 to 163.. The Republican Study Committee budget, which I wrote about earlier this week, failed 285 to 136. The Congressional Black Caucus’ alternative was voted down 314 to 107. The Congressional Progressive Caucus budget proposal got just 78 votes to 346 nays.
