Votes in Congress

April 21, 1991|By Roll Call Report Syndicate

Here is how members of Maryland's delegation on Capitol Hill were recorded on important roll-call votes last week:

Y: YES N: NO X: NOT VOTING

HOUSE: THE 1992 BUDGET

By a vote of 261-163, the House approved a fiscal 1992 budget plan drafted by Democrats that anticipates outlays of $1.46 trillion, revenue of $1.16 trillion and a deficit of about $290 billion.

Compared with President Bush's 1992 budget, the Democratic plan spends more on Medicare, veterans' benefits and other entitlements, rejects a cut in the capital gains tax rate, and increases education spending at the expense of science and law enforcement.

A yes vote supported the budget plan.

HOUSE: THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET

By a vote of 89 for and 335 against, the House rejected President Bush's proposed budget for fiscal 1992.

The White House plan agreed with the Democratic budget (above) on broad spending categories, but the two budgets differed greatly in particulars. For example, the presidential budget urged slower spending growth on entitlements such as Medicare, less discretionary spending than Democrats wanted for the poor, more for space and technology, and sought to apply the Medicare payroll tax to certain state and local government employees.

A yes vote supported the president's budget.
