BetterOffBudget2

  Yesterday, the House voted on two budgets from within the Democratic caucus: the Congressional Progressive Caucus's “Better Off Budget” and the Congressional Black Caucus's budget. Both are more progressive than the House Democratic caucus's budget and (obviously) the Ryan budget. I believe the House will vote on those tomorrow.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus’s budget received only 89 votes. A majority (103 to 89) of the Democratic caucus voted against it.

Here are the 89 supporters:

Joyce Beatty (OH-03)
Xavier Becerra (CA-34)
Earl Blumenauer (OR-03)
Bob Brady (PA-01)
Corinne Brown (FL-05)
G. K. Butterfield (NC-01)
Mike Capuano (MA-07)
Tony Cárdenas (CA-29)
Andre Carson (IN-07)
Matt Cartwright (PA-17)
Kathy Castor (FL-14)
Judy Chu (CA-27)
