Marylanders votes on Obama budget
I just got a phone call from a reader wondering how Maryland's congressmen voted on Obama's budget last week. We reported it in the paper and on the Web at the time, but in case anyone else is wondering:
Paul West from our D.C. bureau reported at the time:
Bartlett and Kratovil were the only House members from Maryland to vote against Obama's budget. Both criticized it as too expensive.
In defending his vote, Kratovil said that hard-pressed American families are "sacrificing some of the things they have become accustomed to" and criticized the president for failing to make tough choices that reflect similar sacrifices.
