Budget Baby Steps

But when it came time for the votes to be counted, the 10% across the board cut - which would have saved around $4 billion - didn't come close to prevailing, as the House voted 312-110 against the plan.

108 Republicans voted for the cut, while 127 voted against it, again showing that lots of people like to talk about cutting the budget, but it's not easy to come up with big cuts that everyone can agree on.
