House Republicans vow to close ranks, support budget plan

By David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) – With defense and deficit hawks still eyeing each other warily over the federal budget, House Republican leaders predicted on Tuesday that their fractious caucus would close ranks and support a 10-year balanced-budget plan. Some Republican lawmakers want more military spending, while others focus on keeping the budget deficit under control. Beginning on Wednesday, the House of Representatives was expected to begin voting on a range of differing budget blueprints, including three from Republicans who now control both chambers of Congress. Whatever emerges from the Republicans’ votes has little to no chance of actually becoming law, but it will help Republican efforts to show they can work together and govern.
