See How Your Representative Voted on the Ryan/Murray Tax & Spend Budget Here

The House, as expected, voted to pass the budget deal reached by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), by a margin of 332-94. 62 Republicans, and 32 Democrats, voted against the measure. You can see how your representative voted HERE: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll640.xml

This budget, an amended version of H.J.Res. 59, would spend $63 billion more than the spending caps established in 2011, raise fees on air travel and customs, and contains a provision that will make it more difficult for senators to stop spending and tax hikes in the future.
Presuming that the Democrats are able to hold their membership in support, they still need at least five Republicans to get them to the 60 votes needed to pass this ridiculous plan.

You can take action to urge some of the less reliable Republicans to hold their ground by voting against cloture on the budget deal HERE: https://secure.freedomworks.org/site/Advocacy?alertId=1293&p...
