Portman votes for proposed cuts
Ohio senators miles apart on budget cuts


Ohio’s two senators remain on opposite sides of the federal budget debate. Republican Senator Rob Portman voted to cut 60 billion dollars from the federal budget as proposed by the House of Representatives. Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown voted against the cuts, saying they’d cost 27-thousand Ohio jobs and hundreds of thousands nationwide.  Portman says, though, that’s false economics and the cuts don’t go far enough.
