SENATE REJECTS GOP (RYAN) BUDGET PLAN

Postby realist » Wed May 25, 2011 6:08 pm

Politics News Alert: Senate rejects GOP budget plan that would overhaul Medicare May 25, 2011 6:02:38 PM----------------------------------------The Senate voted [highlight]57 to 40[/highlight] against GOP Rep. Paul Ryan's 2012 budget proposal, with all but five Republicans supporting the spending plan. The vote comes a day after Republicans lost a special congressional election in New York that was dominated by debate over the Ryan proposal, an election that underscored the political peril in the GOP plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program.

And that, my friends, is what's called "politically tone-deaf."

SENATE REJECTS GOP (RYAN) BUDGET PLAN

Postby TexasFilly » Wed May 25, 2011 6:13 pm

From realist's link:

The Republicans voting against the plan Wednesday were moderate Sens. Scott Brown (Mass.), Susan Collins (Maine), Olympia Snowe (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), [highlight]as well as conservative freshman Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), who argued that the plan did not go far enough in cutting spending.[/highlight] :( Immediately after the vote on the Ryan budget, the Senate also overwhelmingly rejected President Obama’s 2012 budget proposal. :shock: Votes on two other Republicans’ budget plans are likely to come later Wednesday or Thursday.

Just more sausage-making fu.Reid rushed the first vote in order to make maximum hay from NY26. But the real wheeling-dealing has not been finished. The WH budget is DOA in the House anyway. So.... that's the extent of my analysis. :P
