Skip to comments.House Democrats postpone budget measure vote amid progressive resistance
Posted on 04/10/2019 2:58:52 AM PDT by Libloather
House Democratic leaders scrapped a scheduled Wednesday vote on a budget measure backed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., amid opposition from left-wing members of the caucus.
The measure would have raised limits on discretionary spending for both the Pentagon and domestic agencies, but leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) pushed to allow billions more in spending on domestic programs.
An amendment offered by CPC co-chairwoman Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., would have added $67 billion to spending limits for nondefense programs over the next two fiscal years. Jayapal's amendment would have also capped defense and nondefense spending at $664 billion each in fiscal year 2020 (which begins Oct. 1 of this year) and $680 billion each in fiscal year 2021.
"We need to prioritize our communities, not our military spending," Jayapal tweeted Tuesday morning, adding,"Progressives arent backing down from this fight."

Another Justice RAT. Keep an eye on this one.
This is why it was a tragedy that we lost the House of Representatives. To all those last November who said it “didn’t matter” - they were wrong.
Nancy is going to have to really crack down on the far lefties or lose total control. Arranging for AOC to be arrested for money laundering and fraud would be a good start.

Tragedy? Methinks one protest too much.
(R)N(C) “led” Congress was passing $1T+ deficit budgets, fully funding EPA\NRA\PP and ZERO $$ for any wall (in fact, LIED to President “If you sign THIS budget, we’ll have funding in the NEXT one”). 8 YEARS under Zero and the House was writing blank checks.
So yea, “doesn’t matter” ‘cuz they didn’t do a DAMN thing except GROW govt every time they’d held the reigns (NCLB, TSA/DHS, NSA, largest expanse via MediXYZ part-D - all under GW)
Cowtowing to communists: the DEMON RATS ARE EVIL; THEY HATE THE COUNTRY AND HATE “THE RULE OF LAW”.
This is also why voter reform has to be imposed on California. Way too many seats were flipped AFTER the elections ended due to their illegal voting methods.
Because the R’s approved funding for the wall, voted down obamacare, reduced the deficit in spending...
Let the country see what Pramila Jayapal and her ilk want.
The senate stamps the judges.
#### the Rs for running like moderate dems.
Morning! True, Paul Ryan and his RINO boys didnt do us any favors by wasting Trumps first two years. The FY20 budget is still going to be a disaster for our side with the Democrats controlling the House.
Paul Ryan’s house deserved to be tossed out on its ass.
Under the weak kneed Republicans and Rinos it was run by the Democrats anyway. Paula Ryan was a fraud and set us back as much GWB.

California politicians? They’ve already rigged the system where it’s a major victory if a Republican makes the November ballot and have allowed ‘ballot harvesting’.
Congress? The House dems are enjoying their majority too much to want to see change.
Federal Courts? Yeah, right...
True, but Trump, the people, and the country don't deserve what came in to take their place.
Nancy is only there for the Speaker Perks she never thought she would have to work ,LOL
The courts have ruled against states in educational matters, with regard to gerrymandering, insurance regulation, marriage, but claim they have no role in election integrity. Harrumph!
No of course you are right it was a bad thing.
but it DID bring into full view what the new dem party looks like.
Hates Jews and capitalism and has utter morons leading the way.
Since so many seats were stolen i fear it will be hard to take back. What do you think?
Morning back at ya!! A little late though lol
I work weird hours and sleep weird hours!!
