The House Budget Committee has 38 members. Twenty-two of them are Republicans, Sixteen on them are Democrats. The committee is chaired by Paul Ryan, the conservative heartthrob whose budgets have, over the last few years, come to define the modern Republican Party.


But on Wednesday night, when Ryan sent his latest budget to the committee that he runs, it squeaked through by one vote. And some of the dissenters were on his side of the aisle. Justin Amash and Tim Huelskamp, two of committee's most conservative members, voted against Ryan's plan. Another, Rick Mulvaney, voted for it in committee, but says he might vote against in on the House floor. As Erik Wasson reports in the Hill, "the tight vote indicates that next week House GOP leaders could face a larger floor defection than they did on last year's budget, which got every Republican but four behind it."

And the dissidents have powerful supporters. The Club for Growth came out in opposition to Ryan's plan. "On balance, the Ryan Budget is a disappointment for fiscal conservatives," they said in a statement.

The conservative skeptics all voice the same problem with the Ryan budget: It does not go far enough, fast enough.
