House Democrats pass key budget bill
from Philadelphia Inquirer
House Democrats muscled through legislation Wednesday night that would freeze the budgets of most cabinet departments and fund the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq for another year. The bill would cap the agencies' annual operating budgets at the $1.2 trillion approved for the recently finished budget year, a $46 billion cut of more than 3 percent from President Obama's request. It includes $159 billion to cover the wars.
