Not A Single House Democrat Supported Obama’s Budget
For all the carping from the left about the Paul Ryan budget, the truth is that they have no plan for addressing the nation’s deficit and debt issues. They’re not even in agreement on President Obama’s budget plan.
The President’s budget was brought to the House floor for a vote last night, and it didn’t get a single vote. It went down 414 – 0 with every single Democrat either voting against the budget or not voting at all.
WASHINGTON – Before taking up their own budget plan for next year, House Republicans pushed a version of President Obama’s $3.6 trillion budget to the floor for a vote, and it was it was unanimously defeated, 414-0.
Republicans have opposed Obama’s budget all year, criticizing its tax increases on the wealthy and saying it lacks sufficient spending cuts.
The vote came as the House debated a GOP budget that contains far more deficit reduction than Obama has proposed.
Democrats aren’t serious about reducing the budget deficits. While Republican proposals for doing so are far from perfect, at least they’ve put a serious plan on the table.Tags: Barack Obama, deficits, national debt
