Only Two Votes For Obama’s Budget In The House

Republicans put President Obama’s budget up for a vote in the House and it actually did better than his prior budgets. This one received two votes!

The House on Wednesday handily rejected a GOP budget alternative based on President Obama’s 2015 spending blueprint.

It was defeated 2-413, following a pattern seen in recent years in House votes to overwhelmingly reject Obama’s budget proposals. Today’s vote is just slightly better than the unanimous vote against Obama’s budget in 2012.

The two “yes” votes came from Reps. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) and Jim Moran (D-Va.), who is retiring.

Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) offered a budget alternative based on Obama’s budget plan as a substitute amendment to the House GOP budget. Mulvaney made this move as a way to force Democrats to go on the record about the president’s spending plans. (Read More)

So all but two Democrats voted against Obama’s budget. Does that mean they’re all raaaaacists?
