Ryan Budget Fails in Senate; 5 Republicans Defect


The Ryan budget plan just failed by a vote of 40 in favor and 57 opposed. Senate Republicans voting "NO":

  • Scott Brown
  • Susan Collins
  • Lisa Murkowski
  • Rand Paul
  • Olympia Snowe

Dick Lugar and Orrin Hatch, both facing potential primary armageddon from teabaggers, both voted in favor of eliminating Medicare. No Democrats defected.
