  •  Here's the numbers: 38 for; 382 against (0+ / 0-)

    From Joan's TPM link:

    A version of the Bowles-Simpson budget — the commission never found the majority needed to report out an official one — was defeated 38-382. The measure was offered by Reps. Jim Cooper (D-TN) and Steve LaTourette (R-OH) in the run-up to Thursday’s vote on the GOP’s updated blueprint written by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan.

    To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. - Theodore Roosevelt 1918
