From The Hill:
The House on Friday approved a fiscal year 2012 budget resolution from Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that seeks to drastically limit government spending next year and in years to follow.
But the vote on the measure — which imposes $5.8 trillion in spending cuts over the next decade — came after a clear sign that at least half of the Republican caucus supports even tougher spending cuts.
The final tally was 235-193, with four Republicans opposing it. Every Democrat voted no.
It will now be considered by the Senate, where it is considered dead on arrival.
Harry Reid says immediately: “It will never pass the Senate.”
Don’t you just love that bi-partisanship. Proves one more time that when the dems say they want compromise and bi-partisanship, what they mean is agreeing with and supporting their agenda.
Republican no votes are: Reps. Ron Paul of Texas, Walter Jones of North Carolina, David McKinley of West Virginia, and Denny Rehberg of Montana.
