The House narrowly approved a White House plan to cut $15 billion in previously allocated government money late Thursday, a mostly symbolic move designed to demonstrate fiscal discipline in Washington.
The so-called “recissions” package was passed by a vote of 210-206, with 19 Republicans joining 187 Democrats in opposing the measure.
The article goes on to state the following:
