The Bowles-Simpson deficit-reduction plan went down to a crushing defeat in the House late Wednesday night in a vote that damages the one bipartisan proposal that just a few months ago had seemed like a possible solution to the country’s debt woes.

The 382-38 defeat, with just 16 Republicans and 22 Democrats voting for it, marks a bad end to what began nearly two years ago, when President Obama tapped former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles, a Democrat, and former Sen. Alan Simpson, a Republican, to lead a deficit-reduction committee.

Their report has popped up in every deficit discussion since then, but had never gotten a vote in either chamber until this week, when opponents prevailed.

“This doesn’t go big. This doesn’t tackle the problem. This doesn’t do the big things,” said Rep. Paul D. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the Budget Committee. “You can never get the debt under control if you don’t deal with our health care entitlement programs.”

The debate came as the House worked its way through its fiscal year 2013 budget plan, which Mr. Ryan wrote.
The Bowles-Simpson plan was offered as an alternative on the chamber floor.

Minutes earlier, the House also defeated Mr. Obama’s own budget, submitted last month, on a 414-0 vote arranged by Republicans to embarrass the president and officially shelve his plan.

Do all the democrats and independents want to embarrass the president as well.. the entire republican caucus voting no may embarrass the President, but for the entire democratic caucus to vote no alongside them is an insult to the president..



how do you arrange a 414 - 0 vote?

Last year his budget went down 97 -0 in the Senate. You would think that would be hint enough for him to clean house of his radical advisors and get some that can suggest something that at least somebody in his own party might support. :roll:

I think the radicals in his administration know exactly what they are doing..

having bloated budgets and voting against them is the plan...


one thing most are missing in this debate is that his first budget was a whopper... it hailed in enormous spending increases..

and every proposed budget since would have to rein in those increase...

but

by not enacting a new budget and operating on continuing resolutions, with automatic increases, Obama and the democrats can protect the bloated spending programs they favor...

Should the one-legged wonder Bob Kerrey get elected US Senator in Nebraska, and Obamanure get re-elected, Obamanure will ALWAYS be able to count on Kerrey's vote!

The Old Mullah should move down here & get registered to vote. That way he can cast his vote for two guys who think just like him, Obamanure & Kerrey!
