House passes continuing resolution, Ryan budget

The House on Thursday morning voted to pass a continuing resolution that would fund the government for the next six months and also passed Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) budget.

The continuing resolution, which passed easily in the Senate on Wednesday and will prevent the government from shutting down later this month, passed 318-109.

The Ryan budget passed 221-207, with 10 Republicans and every Democrat voting against it.

The Ryan budget aims to balance the budget over the next decade, including nearly $5 trillion in spending cuts. Senate Democrats have their own budget, and neither is expected to clear both chambers.
