Democrats relish chance to attack Republicans over austere budget

Paul Ryan attends Conservative Political Action Conference in suburban Washington DCBy David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democrats in the U.S. Congress can hardly contain their glee over the latest Republican budget plan, even though they loathe the details of the blueprint that would cut programs for the poor and funding of medical research.

It won approval on Thursday in the Republican-dominated House of Representatives.
