House easily passes budget bill 260-167

The headline:  House passes budget deal despite GOP defections

The summary:  The House of Representatives passed the budget bill agreed to late last week by a vote of 260-167.

The reaction:  There were rumors that the vote might be close but it didn’t really end up that close at all.  The big question would be how many Republicans would cross party lines and vote no on the budget bill.  59 did and those presumably did so because they were looking for even greater spending cuts in the budget.  The majority of Democrats voted against it as well.

Now, it heads to the Senate where they are expected to vote on it Thursday.
