US Republicans pass $3.8 trillion 2016 budget

The Republican-led US Congress passed a 2016 budget Tuesday, a largely symbolic policy document which would balance federal spending and slash $5 trillion in social, education and health programs over the next decadeThe Republican-led US Congress passed a 2016 budget, a largely symbolic policy document which if fully enacted would balance federal spending and slash $5 trillion in social, education and health programs over the next decade. The $3.871 trillion blueprint for the year beginning October 1, 2015, is not dramatically lower than the $4 trillion wish list put forward by President Barack Obama in February. The Senate approved the Republican budget by a final vote of 51 to 48, with all Democrats voting against. It passed the House of Representatives last month, also with united Democratic opposition, and despite deep divisions over military spending and other issues that threatened to split Republicans.
