Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget passed the House Thursday.

The 221-207 vote fell mostly along party lines, with no Democrats voting for the bill.

Ten Republicans voted against the bill: Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Georgia Rep. Paul Broun, Arkansas Rep. Rick Crawford, Virginia Rep. Randy Forbes, Rep. Chris Gibson of New York, Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey, Nevada Rep. Joe Heck, Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina, Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie, and Rep. David McKinley of West Virginia.

Broun came out aggressively against the bill earlier this week in a New York Times opinion piece, saying that it “fails to seriously address runaway government spending.”
