House approves Ryan budget

(POLITICO) The House on Thursday approved Rep. Paul Ryan’s 2014 budget on a largely party-line vote of 221-207.

The 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee’s spending plan aims to bring the federal books into balance in a decade by repealing President Barack Obama’s health care law, overhauling Medicare, rewriting the Tax Code and paring back government spending.

Only 10 Republicans opposed the plan. All Democrats voted against it.

It’s the third year in a row that Speaker John Boehner’s majority has passed a budget, but the first year since the GOP took the House that the Senate majority will do one at the same time.
