Ryan Budget: How Did House Republicans Vote? Breaking Down 12 'No's

This year saw more Republicans than ever vote against Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan’s spending blueprint, which passed the House Thursday 219-205. Here is a breakdown of the 12 Republicans who voted against the Wisconsin Republican’s budget and why.

The Georgia Senate Hopefuls

Reps. Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey and Jack Kingston are three of the candidates in a crowded Georgia Republican Senate primary, and their voting patterns have aligned over the past several weeks as they’ve sought to minimize attacks from other camps.

Broun and Gingrey have voted against Ryan’s budgets in the past, but Kingston has been a reliable vote for leadership. That pattern broke Thursday, when Kingston joined his colleagues in voting against Ryan’s resolution.

Rep. Austin Scott of Georgia also voted no, noting he voted instead for “the most conservative budget put forward, the RSC budget.” He added, though, “I have great respect for Chairman Ryan and the work he has put into crafting solutions for our country.”
