On Thursday night, the House passed the budget deal struck by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) N/A% and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) 0% with a 332 to 94 vote. 62 Republicans voted against the budget deal that represents an immediate increase in federal spending — $63 billion over the next two years.
Did your representative to protect you from Washington’s out-of-control spending?
The budget deal lifts the discretionary spending caps to $1.012 trillion in 2014 and $1.014 trillion in 2015 and increases revenues through an assortment of tax increases (which are labeled fees) in exchange for promises of future spending reductions, some coming a decade later. This vote represents a significant achievement for President Obama, who believes that government spending is a panacea to America’s economic woes.
The budget deal legislation will now move to the Senate, where a legislative gimmick has been found that will limit Senate conservative’s ability to block tax increases in future years.
