House Passes Ryan Budget, Sets Up Spending Fight With Senate
Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call The House easily passed Budget Chairman Paul Ryans $1.028 trillion fiscal blueprint 228-191.
But unlike last year, when Democrats surprised Republicans into nearly passing the RSC alternative, the GOP was ready and easily batted away the tactic.
After it became clear the GOP would not pass the RSC budget on its own, Democrats cast their votes and the measure ultimately failed 136-285.
In the end, RSC leaders gave their blessing to the Ryan budget, calling it a step in the right direction.
