Spending By Jayson

The U.S. House today passed a bill to reduce federal spending on such programs as NCLB, health care, job training, and other so-called discretionary items.

The vote was 215-213, in favor of less discretionary spending by the federal gummint.

The partisan breakdown of that vote was:

0/200 = Democrats in favor of less spending (0%).
215/227 = Republicans in favor of less spending (95%).

200/200 = Democrats against less spending (100%).
12/227 = Republicans against less spending (5%).

Go figure.

Here’s the Asocialist Press’s hysterics-laden version of events.

Now it’s off to the U.S. Senate.

That should be quite in-ter-es-ting.

Or not.
