Administration's budget plan nixed 414-0


As the nation and most states struggle to climb out of the deepest recession since the Great Depression, the Obama administration produced a budget of $3.73 trillion. The President’s budget failed in a House vote 414-0.

Last week the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass a deficit-reducing budget as proposed by Wisconsin’s R-Paul Ryan 228-191, according to Reuters.

Democrats vowed to kill the plan in the U.S. Senate, in which they hold a majority.
