U.S. House Democrats call off budget vote after liberal revolt

Reuters | April 10, 2019

U.S. House of Representatives Democrats on Tuesday canceled a planned floor vote on legislation to set federal spending levels for next year after the party’s left wing demanded more money for domestic programs. It was an awkward moment for Democrats, who won control of the House from Republicans in last November’s congressional elections, but now appear unable to unify liberals and moderates around a budget plan. The House vote had been planned for Wednesday and would have been the first step in negotiations with the Republican-led Senate over spending levels. Republicans, when they led the House, had similar difficulties. Over the years, Congress has frequently failed to pass a budget blueprint.
