Senate Votes Down House Budget

Not a surprise by any stretch. The question was more about if there would be party crossovers, which there was. Would be Nice for the Democrats in the Senate to put forth a budget plan; it has been two years since they have proposed one...

"Joined by several moderate Republicans, Democrats controlling the Senate rejected a controversial House budget plan for turning Medicare into a voucher-like program for future beneficiaries.

Five Republicans joined every Democrat in killing the measure, which calls for transforming Medicare into a program in which future beneficiaries – people now 54 years old and younger – would be given a subsidy to purchase health insurance rather than have the government directly pay hospital and doctor bills.
