Lawmakers want to curb growing federal deficit
All but two of Wisconsin's eight U.S. House members supported an effort to put the brakes on a growing federal deficit.
The House voted Wednesday to bring back a modified "pay as you go" law.
It would require new programs and tax cuts to be paid for with the same amounts of spending cuts or tax increases elsewhere.
Republicans were upset that the rule would not apply to massive appropriation bills which are part of the federal budget.
