Unlikely Harry’ll even bring it up for a vote, I suspect.
All efforts in futility with the left in control of anything.
Pretty safe vote for all. Democrats could have voted for it to put in their “see how conservative I am” files to whip out at election time.
Continuing to do the job they are supposed to while the Dem controlled Senate continues to not do theirs.
SHUT IT DOWN. No more capitulation with continuing resolutions.
He'll blame the Senate's inaction on the sequester.
So let’s have a conference committee, you know, the way it was done when ADULTS were in the Senate.
Ten Republicans voted Nay.
Posturing like this isn’t going to play well.
It will be interesting to see if he does considering Senate Democrats to force vote on Ryan budget
We will find out what the American people are made of. Or at least what they want.
Hopium delusions and snake oil or the truth.
How is doing your Constitutional job posturing?
How do you think the Senate's budget is going to play?
So they swallowed the Democrats’ line that the kids or Grandma will be out in the street?
The usual RINOS I suspect.
This one gives a little bit of background (NationalJournal): Ten House GOPers Vote Against Ryan's Budget
Ten Republicans voted Nay.”
Ryan’s budget is for ten years down the road. Cuts can, need and must be made now. Most of them won’t be around ten years from now so what do they care. In the meantime, the debt continues to roll up and away!
I’m sure they knew full well that anything with any cuts at all would never come up for a vote by the Senate so I don’t understand why they didn’t go for broke and pass a plan that would balance the budget in two years or certainly no more than five.
IMO all this confirms that Republicans have no intention of ever getting serious about reducing runaway irresponsible spending.
Now sit back and wait. Do nothing until the Senate passes a bill. Then meet them in conference committee. If the Senate doesn’t pass a bill, fine. No more continuing resolutions or dealing directly with the President. He doesn’t have a say until there is a bill out of conference.

You can not win elections by promising to take things from people.
That is the flaw in Ryan’s budget. He started talking about cuts to entitlements, and that made all those on the dole, from welfare to social security, very scared.
We, as a party, have to start playing smart.
Issuing a voucher for Medicare insurance is not a "cut to entitlements", it's a means of providing the same benefit at a long-term lower cost. Private insurance firms are more efficient providers than is the government bureaucracy -- and far better at controlling/minimizing fraud.
Speaking of which, I'm "on the dole" according to your definition -- a recipient of both Social Security and Medicare -- and I have no issue whatsoever with the Ryan budget. Indeed, I'm cheering for it as a step in the right direction.
Glad to hear it! However, yor are the minority.
We need more like you to speak up, and be willing to say “This is what I want!”

Recall 2004? When GWB campaigned on privatizing social security? And he won Florida handily...because seniors voted for him overwhelmingly?
I'm not the minority.
The GOP-e may think I am, because they listen to the left's propaganda. But I'm not.
LOL! Do you remember what happened after that?
A lot of seniors started screaming that they wanted THEIR MONEY!
What I remember is that, once Bush was elected and was outlining his second term plans to privatize social security, the Democrats started a scare campaign...and the GOP majority in Congress retreated into the woodwork.
The votes were real. The scare campaign was a fabrication.
And the 'pubbies folded like a cheap suit...
