$3.5 Trillion Budget Blueprint Passes Divided House
By a narrow vote of 220-212, the House approved a $3.5 trillion budget blueprint that would allow Democrats to start drafting legislation encompassing many of the party’s top priorities, including a vast expansion of the social safety net and funding to fight climate change.

Maybe in your caucus you think it’s a great day for you and the Democrats.

The resolution is adopted. Without objection, the motion to reconsider is laid on the table.
