Three Wisconsin Republicans Abandon Ryan on Spending Bill Vote
A majority of the five House Republicans from Wisconsin voted against the omnibus spending bill from House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) and Senate Appropriations Committee chairwoman Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD).
The omnibus spending bill completes the budget deal that House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) cut with Senate Budget Committee chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) in December, which passed before the end of 2013 and was signed into law by President Barack Obama.
Including Ryan, there are five Republicans in the U.S. House from Wisconsin. The others are Reps. Sean Duffy (R-WI), Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI), Tom Petri (R-WI), and Reid Ribble (R-WI).
While Duffy joined with Ryan in voting for the omnibus spending bill Wednesday afternoon, Sensenbrenner, Petri, and Ribble each voted against it.
