Ryan-Murray Budget Passes House
Republicans vote yes 169-62.
The House passed the Ryan-Murray budget compromise Thursday night by a vote of 332-94. Republicans approved 169-62. (Here’s the roll call). In the Senate, Republican opposition to the bill is growing, with the main objection being that it undoes the sequester for the next two years in exchange for down-the-road savings. But as Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) argued, “You can’t spend your time making perfect the enemy of the good.” Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi told her caucus to “embrace the suck” and vote for the bill – 163 of them did.
