Decisive/Divisive Budget Vote

By a 216-214 the House of Representatives passed a scorched earth budget. Had Jim voted against it, rather than for it, the budget bill would have failed to pass. Here are a few highlights:
  • $8 Billion Cut in Student Loans
  • 70,000 Low income people will lose their health care
  • 225,000 people will lose their food stamps

On the plus side, Paris Hilton's taxes won't go up! Thanks Jim!
