Cut, Cap and Balance passes House

U.S. House of Representatives passes Cut, Cap and Balance bill on July 19, 2011

By a primarily partisan vote of 234-to-190, the House passed the Cut, Cap and Balance budget plan Tuesday.  The plan reportedly has no chance of becoming law, but does show the support the Tea Party has in the House. 

All told, the bill would cut in excess of $100 billion in fiscal 2012 from the nation’s spending.  The bill has no chance of passing, however, because the Senate is Democratic-controlled and President Barack Obama has already suggested that he would veto the bill. 

Democrats criticized Republicans for wasting time in having the vote on the bill when it has no chance of passing while Republicans said that they’d welcome a debate involving the Democrat’s plan if they had one – but, they say, the Democrats don’t.
