The U.S. House overwhelmingly approved, 332-94, a two-year bipartisan budget framework Thursday that will eliminate the threat of a government shutdown and modestly reduce the deficit over the next decade.
Nearly equal numbers of Republicans, 169, and Democrats, 163, supported the agreement.
"We see this as a step in the right direction on the way toward our ultimate goal," said House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who crafted the deal with Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash.
Ryan said Republicans need to face the realities of divided government and focus on governing -- and winning elections -- if they hope to advance more fiscally conservative proposals in the future.
The agreement sets top-line federal spending figures through fiscal year 2015 and partially alleviates unpopular spending cuts known as the sequester. Federal spending on defense and domestic programs will be capped at $1.012 trillion in fiscal year 2014, and $1.014 trillion for fiscal year 2015.
It does not affect spending on entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare.
lol! Run that by me again.... they TOOK AWAY spending cuts???

"EX-IM BANK PROVIDES U.S. COMPANIES WITH A COMPETITVE EDGE IN AN INCREASINGLY AGGRESSIVE GLOBAL MARKETPLACE

United States equipment and services for the petroleum industry are sought after by the world's leading companies because of their quality and reliability. To help U.S. companies win contracts in this industry, Ex-Im Bank is able to provide financing to a potential foreign customer. This financing is solely and exclusively for the purchase of U.S. goods or services and its use is contingent upon this requirement.

With emerging markets in many areas of the globe, including Latin America, efforts by other nations to help their companies obtain export financing is growing. Therefore, when companies, like Petrobras, are in need of high-quality products and services, Ex-Im Bank increases the opportunities for U.S. businesses to win the contracts instead of their competitors around the world.
THE OPPORTUNITY: PETROBRAS PLANS TO SPEND $175 BILLION TO DEVELOP ITS OFF-SHORE OIL FIELDS

In April 2009, Ex-Im Bank formally offered to consider up to $2 billion in financing to secure the purchase of U.S. goods and services by Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.(Petrobras), Brazil's national oil company. Ex-Im Bank told Petrobras it would consider increasing its offer above $2 billion if requested. Potentially, Petrobras $2 billion of purchases financed by Ex-Im Bank will help create and maintain over 16,000 American jobs.
OVER $300 MILLION EX-IM BANK CREDIT GUARANTEE SUPPORTS EXPORT SALES BY ABOUT 150 U.S. COMPANIES

To date, Ex-Im Bank has approved a request from JP Morgan Chase, acting as lender, for a more than $300 million, medium-term guarantee. This facility was made operative on May 27, 2011 and is being used to finance the Petrobras's general purchases of U.S. manufactured oil and gas equipment and services..."

Even Republicans have a lower opinion these days of Congressman Paul Ryan, the partyís 2012 vice presidential nominee and the chief author of the new House GOP budget plan.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 35% of all Likely U.S. Voters now view Ryan favorably. That's down 15 points from 50% in August just after Mitt Romney chose him as his running mate.

Fifty-four percent (54%) have an unfavorable opinion of the Wisconsin congressman. These figures include 17% with a Very Favorable view of him and 23% with a Very Unfavorable one. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided...."
