House Wrap

The House adjourned shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday, and will reconvene at noon on Monday.

As contentious as the healthcare votes were this week, the House is already transitioning to a debate next week on the budget. 

Some conservative Republicans, including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and members of the Republican Study Committee took time on Thursday afternoon, before the House adjourned, to set a goal of reducing spending to levels below those of 2008.

But the vote to repeal healthcare legislation still seems to sting on the left side of the aisle. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) issued a statement on Thursday to express his disappointment with Republicans.

 “There is, in fact, a concrete health care plan that accomplishes the goals laid out by Republicans, from fostering job creation to expanding coverage to ensuring fiscal discipline,” said Hoyer. “It’s called the Affordable Care Act, and House Republicans just voted to repeal it.”
