Latham No on Republican Budget

Latham Votes No on Republican "Budget" (sic) Alternative

On the one that counted, of course, Iowa's Tom Latham voted no along with every single House Republican (again). But score one for symbolism: Latham was one of the 38 Republicans who voted against the relatively number-free Republican budget.

Leonard Boswell did not join the 20 Dems opposing the Obama-backed real budget. Perhaps that primary challenge last year kept him from joining his fellow Blue Dogs (and, voting no for the opposite reason, Dennis Kucinich.)
