U.S. House Republican leaders

tongzhanshang 2 years 45 weeks 4 days 4 hours ago

U.S. House Republican leaders twisted just enough arms shortly after midnight Nov. 18 to eke out a 217–215 vote win for a Bush administration-backed $50 billion R4 3DSpackage of spending cuts in vital working family programs. But House leaders postponed until December the House vote on a $70 billion package of tax cuts largely for the wealthy, failing to m3i zero pass the measure as planned before the Thanksgiving recess. The Senate approved its version of the tax cut bill cyclods in another after-midnight vote Nov. 18. On Nov. 11, Republican leaders postponed a vote on the House spending cuts because they didn’t have the votes, but a week’s worth of arm-twisting and a few minor changes produced the win. The House bill would cut billions from Medicaid health services for poor R4I children and long-term care patients, student loan programs, child support enforcement, foster care and Social Security disability payments and food stamps.
