HOUSE REPUBLICANS PASS PAUL RYAN’S RADICAL BUDGET


By Pat Garofalo/Think Progress

The House of Representatives today passed the radical Republican 2013 budget, authored by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI), by a vote of 228-191. The budget would gut the social safety net, but give so much in tax cuts to the rich and corporations that it would still increase the national debt. 10 Republicans joined all the Democrats in voting no.
UPDATE
The 10 Republicans voting against Ryan’s budget were Reps. Amash, Barton, Duncan (TN), Gibson, Huelskamp, Jones, McKinley, Platts, Rehberg, and Whitfield.
