ROLL CALL

The House

March 12, 1992

Budget

By a vote of 215 for and 201 against, the House sent the Senate a fiscal 1993 budget resolution (HR 287) providing for outlays of $1.53 trillion, revenue of $1.2 trillion and a deficit of $330 billion. The year begins next October.

This approval of the Democratic fiscal plan followed votes rejecting the budgets of President Bush and the most conservative and liberal wings of the House.

About half of federal spending is for domestic entitlements whose levels are protected by law. The annual congressional budget resolution apportions the other half. This measure calls for spending $286.2 billion on defense, $231.7 billion on domestic programs, $214 billion on national debt interest and $20.6 billion on foreign aid.

A yes vote was to approve the Democratic budget blueprint for fiscal 1993.

Bush Budget

By a vote of 42 for and 370 against, the House rejected President Bush's recommended 1993 federal budget. It differed from the Democratic blueprint mainly by setting a slightly lower annual deficit and providing more money for defense and less for social programs.

A yes vote supported President Bush's budget.

Liberal Budget Plan

By a vote of 77 for and 342 against, the House defeated the most liberal budget blueprint under debate. The Black Caucus-Progressive Caucus plan was for defense cuts of nearly $50 billion in fiscal 1993, about five times the "peace dividend" reductions of the Democratic budget that was eventually adopted, and tax hikes on corporations and persons of upper income.

A yes vote supported the most liberal budget option before the House.

Conservative Budget Plan

By a vote of 60 for and 344 against, the House defeated the most conservative of the pending budget plans, a measure that sought to freeze overall domestic spending at existing levels, brake escalating Medicare and Medicaid costs and reduce foreign aid by 25%.

A yes vote was for the most conservative budget option.
