Issue: H.Res. 38 Reducing non-security spending to fiscal year 2008 levels or less.
Result: Passed in House: 256 to 165, 13 not voting. Democrat selected vote.
Freedom First Society: H.Res. 38 would reduce non-security spending to fiscal year 2008 levels or less for the final seven months of this fiscal year — a reduction of between $50 billion and $60 billion. A small step in the right direction.
This was an easy GOP posturing vote since the measure was going nowhere. However, H.Res. 38 was more difficult for Democrats to support because in doing so they had to oppose their party leadership. So we only score the Democrats on this one.
We have assigned (good vote) to the Yeas and (bad vote) to the Nays. (P = voted present; ? = not voting; blank = not listed on roll call.)
