How NC’s delegation voted on the Ryan budget plan

The U.S. House approved [1] Rep.Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) budget plan largely along party lines (228-191) Thursday. The $3.5 trillion plan would block tax increases for the wealthiest Americans while making deep cuts to food stamps, Pell grants  and transportation programs. The proposal would also reshape Medicare to reduce deficits. [2]

Rep. Walter Jones [3] (R-NC) was among a group of ten Republicans to reject Ryan’s budget blueprint. The Pitt County Republican also bucked his party last year in voting against the Ryan plan, which is not expected to advance in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

Here’s how the rest of NC’s delegation voted [4]:

Rep. Renee Ellmers – 2nd District
