Vote Tally Count Spending Reduction Sequestration Act H.R. 6684


House Republicans on Thursday passed the first of two bills aimed at averting the looming fiscal crisis, approving a plan that would replace sweeping cuts to defense and other programs with cuts elsewhere in the budget. Apparently Boehner can’t count. Now he has the GOPers out on a ledge with this vote.

The bill narrowly passed, on a 215-209 vote.

Up next, though, is a highly controversial bill that would prevent tax hikes for everyone except those making more than $1 million. Together, the bills amount to what House Speaker John Boehner is calling a “Plan B.”

The tax vote is expected to be close, as Boehner already lost 21 Republicans on the first bill.

    It is looking more and more like this could be John Boehner’s swan song as House leader.
