House GOP to America: "LET THEM EAT CAKE!"

Posted April, 15 2011 by arianne

The U.S. House of Representatives today adopted the Ryan 2012 Budget Resolution on a 235-193 vote.  The vote fell mostly on party lines, with not a single Democrat voting in favor of the plan.  Four Republicans voted against it.  The NY Times has a good interactive feature on the geographic breakdown of the vote.

The bill now moves to the Senate, where it has a snowflake’s chance in…errr…a very warm room…of surviving.  However, the House bill is a likely harbinger of future GOP efforts.   So, we have that to look forward to.
