The votes on HR 2560: Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011

With the debt ceiling looming over the head of the nation, last night the House of Representatives to a step toward resolving the issue. Not only in addressing the immediate problem of the debt ceiling, but taking steps for the first time to lower the national debt and to reign in Government spending.

There is no question that the Bill has problems, notably the requirement to balance the budget – which both Democrats and Republicans are remiss to do. But it is an action that thakes the matter seriously, and places a brake on the true addition of Government, spending money it does not have.

The total vote was – 234 Aye, 190 Nay, 8 choose not to vote at all. The bill passed as it only needed a majoity to pass.

The following is the exact votes of every memeber of the House of Representatives, listed by State and district (emphasis placed on my own representative – Rep. Maurice Hinchey):
