Posted on 04/30/2012 9:59:29 AM PDT by John Semmens
It has been three years since Congressional Democrats have passed a budget. Annual efforts by the Republican-controlled House to get a budget enacted have been blocked by the Democrat-controlled Senate.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairperson, Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Fla) insisted that the absence of a budget isnt the Presidents fault. Hes given us two budgets in the last two years. He cant be blamed if Republicans wont go along.
Neither of Obamas two budgets received a single vote from any member of congress from either party. Wasserman-Schultz was unable to explain this total lack of support. She speculated that I may have stepped out of the room when those votes were taken.
Anyway, budgets are unnecessary, Wasserman-Schultz added. The government has been running fine without one. Taxes continue to flow in. Weve been able to spend more money than ever before. So why mess up a good thing?
Wasserman-Schultz discounted the possibility that Republicans could use this as a winning campaign issue. Voters arent interested in these kind of things, she claimed. As long as we keep them fed and amused why should they care about how we keep the books?

“We don’t need no stinking budget!”
Constitution? - Never heard of that! Is it some sort of legal document?
Stunning, simply stunning. How can one blame the GSA for partying on tax payer dollars if The DNC Chair and Congresscriter from Fl says, “Taxes continue to flow in. Weve been able to spend more money than ever before. So why mess up a good thing? Ranks up their with, Hey I’m not broke, I’ve still got checks in my checkbook. Must be spending money from the mythical Obama stash. And to complain a Republican congress won’t pass the President’s budget after all those Repuplican presidential budgets that were DOA, puhleeze.
Budweiser doesn’t make enough beer to get me to check that out.
With no budget for 3 years, how the hell does this not shut down all GOV? This is just plain mind boggling. Has this happened ever before?
Prolly comes down to no cahones on the “get along” GOP we have up there that keeps signing off on Continuing Resolutions. Timne to Tea Party them.
Your own party didn't vote for BO’s budget last year. And your party will not even bring it to a vote this year? So what are we taking about here? For us taxpayer's we understand and will vote accordingly come 2012. Please don't mess with the United States citizens. Thanks, we do understand what is going on in DC.
BTW, you might be just like another John: JOHN CONNOR.
You have been sent from the future to battle the robot drones of the DNC.
When government become a criminal gang, then it looses legal authority. This is the law on earth.
No budget means there is no measuring stick against which spending is marked.
Ecomnomic Idiocy rules! Sorta!
