Democrats punt on Senate budget bill for third year


quote:

In a stunning backtrack that virtually guarantees Congress for the third year will be unable to produce a budget, Senate Democrats’ top budget writer Tuesday canceled this week’s expected votes on a 2013 fiscal blueprint.


quote:

Instead, Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, North Dakota Democrat, said he will use the next few months to try to breathe life into the shelved 2-year-old Bowles-Simpson deficit commission proposal.

quote:

“It’s hard to negotiate with somebody who won’t tell you where they are,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Budget Committee, who said Mr. Conrad was breaking a promise he made to debate and vote on a budget.

Dems are too busy wanting to regulate how everyone else does their job so they can't do theirs.

The Senate Dems are missing an opportunity to show that they are good stewards of tax payer money. Why they could propose a budget, wait for the Rs to attack, back off the proposed budget and come off as saving tax payer money at the same time saving the safety net with a balanced and fair approach (with the help of the media of course).

Because Harry Reid does not want his party to vote on anything that could be used against the democrats up for re-election and the people who vote for them are stupid enough to fall for this hook line and sinker.

When was the last time we went this long with out a budget passed?

re: Democrats punt on Senate budget bill for third year


The questions are:

a) what will anyone do about the Congress' complete failure to carry out its legal (constitutional) duty?

b) will Boehner have the sack to no pass any more continuing resolutions ("shutting down" the government)?

Answer:

Nothing and frick No.

My initial thought was that most voters wouldn't fall for this bull shite. It's one of my weaknesses. I seem to always give people the benefit of the doubt. However, these D senators know their base better than I. They must be a bunch of dumb asses.

Would you go so far as to say that these wars are being "mongered"?

Hey, as long as I can turn on the tube and see Congressmen outraged over the Secret Service, the GSA, and the War on Women, who cares how many trillions they over spend???

How do these mother frickers get paid? Seriously, does the budget not include their annual salaries?
