"The Republican-led House approved Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) budget plan on Thursday by a 228-191 vote, as 10 GOP lawmakers defected and not one Democrat backed the measure....If Ryan is so great why has congress not passed his budget. Or at least passed it so Obama can veto it? He leads the budget committee, but cannot get his budget passed, for some time now. So he blames the president, but cannot get his own budget passed by his won party controlled House.
This is the "leadership" we need?
Ryan talks alot, but I'm not seeing any action. I'm not seeing any reason to pick these 2 ass-clowns over Obama.
This year's vote was by a narrower margin than the 2011 vote that passed Ryan's budget 235-193. Four Republicans bucked their party last year."
WASHINGTON Democrats controlling the Senate rejected for the second year in a row Wednesday a budget plan passed by House Republicans.
The 58-41 vote against the GOP budget came after a daylong debate in which Democrats blasted Republicans for refusing to consider tax increases as part of a solution to trillion-dollar deficits, and Republicans in turn attacked Democrats for not offering a budget at all.
Republicans launched the debate, which was aimed less at successfully passing a bill than highlighting the failure of Senate Democrats to deal with a budget deficit expected to top $1 trillion for the fourth consecutive year.
The Senate rejected five separate budget plans, including one based on President Barack Obama's February budget and offered by Republicans to embarrass Democrats and the White House. It failed on a 99-0 vote. Three GOP senators elected in 2010 with tea party support also offered plans in a competition to see whose budget could cut government the most.
The end results were preordained: sweeping rejection of Obama's budget and a near party-line vote to block the main alternative, the blueprint of Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., that passed the House in March. The tallies on the Ryan budget and a tougher version offered by Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., defeated on a 57-42 vote, were probably inflated since the votes weren't on the actual budgets themselves but rather on a motion to simply take them up for debate.
That would be you.
