Yesterday, I reported on the House votes on the Progressive Caucus's "Better Off Budget" and the Black Caucus's alternative budget. Only 89 Democrats voted for the CPC budget (with 103 opposing it). Only 116 Democrats voted for the CBC budget (with 76 opposing it).

Today, the House voted on the Democratic caucus's alternative budget.

Obviously, it did not pass. And 31 Democrats joined the GOP in voting against it.

Last year, Dan Lipinski was not there for the vote. This year, he voted no.

Tammy Duckworth, Nick Rahall, and Loretta Sanchez all voted for last year's budget but now oppose their own caucus.

Bill Owens (NY-21) voted against last year's budget but voted for it this time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
