Budget Committee Narrowly Passes Ryan Blueprint

The House Budget Committee late Wednesday night narrowly passed the new Rep. Paul Ryan budget blueprint 19-18, after defeating a number of Democratic amendments aimed at scaling it back.

Democrats voted no and Republican Reps. Justin Amash (MI) and Tim Huelskamp (KS) joined them because they thought the plan didn’t reduce the deficit quickly enough.

It could hit the floor as soon as next week.
