WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a 3.4-trillion-dollar budget for the fiscal year that begins October 1, handing President Barack Obama a victory on his 100th day in office. Lawmakers voted 233-193 in favour of the symbolic blueprint, which broadly embraces some of Obamas top priorities - remaking US health care, battling climate change - and sets the stage for pi tched political battle. It is the first time in many years that we have a budget that is a statement of our national values, said Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The House and Senate in April had approved rival version that were reconciled in recent days. The Senate was expected to vote on the compromise version by the end of the week. Not one of Obamas Republican critics voted for the plan, which the party has warned will unwisely raise taxes, explode the US deficit and national debt. Democrats say the blueprint will bring both under control and point out that 95 percent of Americans will see their taxes reduced. Our plan will cut the federal budget deficit by nearly two-thirds by 2013, and even further in 2014, said Democratic Representative John Spratt, chairman of the House Budget Committee. The record deficit for this year - most of it inherited from the Bush administration - represents 12pc of GDP. Our budget cuts the deficit to a more sustainable level of 3.0pc in 2014, he said.
