No Democrat voted for Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposal, which seeks to balance the budget in 20 years or less (depending on whether you believe that pro-growth budgets increase economic growth or not), and 10 Republicans voted against it as well.

It’s likely those Republicans wanted a faster path to a balanced budget. In all, today’s vote was comparable to last year’s vote.

    America has become an embarrassment.  This bill balances the budget… 18 frickin’ years from now!  How in the hell is that considered ‘fiscal sanity’?

    I’d have voted for it, probably. But we ought to cut a lot more than that budget cuts. Too bad half the country wants such big overspending…
