House Approves Republican Budget Deal

“The House on Thursday passed a final budget deal, bringing Republicans one step closer to enacting a spending blueprint that sets the stage for this summer’s spending bills,” Politico reports.

“The chamber passed the framework, 226-197. It would balance the budget in 10 years without raising taxes, and pave the way for sending an Obamacare repeal to the president’s desk. The Senate will take up the measure next week.”

Wall Street Journal: “Top lawmakers said this week they would consider replacing those across-the-board curbs, known as the sequester, with a deal similar to a two-year accord struck in 2013 by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), which raised spending in exchange for savings found elsewhere in the budget.”
