Spending cuts proposed

There were attempts to cut spending in the House of Representatives by up to four percent. I’m sure you can guess the outcome:

All of these votes were held this week on various appropriations bills. Notice a pattern? Notice the similarities in the vote tallies?

The House failed, 177-231, to pass an amendment that would cut a spending bill by 4% across the board.

The House failed, 168-252, to pass an amendment that would cut a spending bill by 1% across the board.

The House failed, 179-241, to pass an amendment that would cut a spending bill by 0.5% across the board.
