The Senate just finished voting on the Paul Ryan/House Republican budget resolution, as well as the budget put forward by President Obama in February. Both, as expected, were voted down, but only Ryan’s received any votes.
Indeed, the Obama budget failed by the astounding final count of 0 to 97. Not even Bernie Sanders (S., Vt.) could bring himself to support the president’s plan, raising the question, as one observer in the Senate gallery put it: “Are Democrats actually for anything?”
Votes on the budget proposals put forward by Sens. Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) and Rand Paul (R., Ky.) are expected shortly.
UPDATE: The Toomey budget also fails — but gets more votes that Ryan’s — 42 to 55. Sens. Murkowski and Paul are the two who switched their votes.
UPDATE II: The Senate Democratic budget f… oh wait, nevermind.
Final score: Republican budgets 89, Democratic “budgets” 0
