8 of North Carolina’s 13 US House Members Vote Against Radical Ryan Budget
The radical Ryan budget may have passed the US House by a 235-193 on Friday, but the majority of North Carolina’s US House representatives rejected the resolution that many organizations in the state said, “represents an assault on the federal government’s commitment to supporting low- and moderate-income families, children, students, and seniors.”
All seven of North Carolina’s Democratic representatives voted against the bill, as did Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina’s 3rd district. Rep. Jones was one of only four Republican US House members to vote against the radical Ryan budget.
The North Carolina organizations signing on to the letter opposing the Ryan budget all extend their thanks to the members who voted against the bill, particularly Rep. Jones.
