The vote was 258 for and 170 against as the House approved the Democrats' fiscal 1986-88 budget resolution, which calls for $967.3 billion in 1986 outlays, projected revenue of at least $794.1 billion,and an annual deficit of $173.2 billion.
The measure (H. Con. Res. 152) will be merged in conference with the GOP-controlled Senate's budget plan, which would cut the deficit by $56 billion in 1986, but which differs from the Democratic plan with respect to Social Security and defense, among other areas.
The House budget freezes 1986 defense spending at its 1985 level, while the Senate allows military outlays to rise with inflation, a projected hike of $32 billion. The House permits cost-of-living adjustments for Social Security, while the Senate freezes Social Security for one year.
Neither chamber would increase taxes.
Members voting yes supported the Democratic leadership's budget blueprint.
