Neither. Failure to follow a law is not necessarily a crime and often is not. This is not a crime. It may be maddening, but there is no criminal violation here.

IIRC my high school education, the SENATE does not initiate a budget, period. At least technically. In the past, while the President or the Senate may propose and/or pass something, it still has to go to the House where they are the only entity responsible and lawfully allowed to pass a fiscal budget. All money-based bills have to be passed by the House, period.

What happens in practice, though is that Democrat Houses accede to the Senate and rubber stamp their budgets. The fact that Democrats don’t control the House now is where the disconnect is.

Reid is not technically required to submit or pass a budget; that is the purview of the House of Representatives.

No one wants to see him go off to the calaboose.

Don't bet on that.

I propose a Constitutional Amendment that would place all Senator’s, Representatives, President, Vice-President and Cabinet member’s salaries into escrow accounts to be released only when a budget is passed.

Oh, that scamp...Harry "The Body".

Mark Levin is no fan; I think he calls him Harry "The Body" and says Reid looks like an undertaker!

Mormons must be so proud of their boy. I know Salt Lake is, he's a Temple Recommend holding member in good standing....Even after bashing Ezra Taft Benson to the entire faculty and staff of BYU.

BREAKAWAY LDS SECT SCRIPTURE:

"Doctrine and Covenants" Section 98:

5 And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me.

6 Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land;

Filthy hypocrites !!

This is a mob senator.

The question is only how high the stack of felonies is.

If congress can’t tell us ahead of time how they are going to spend our money, then we should not have to pay taxes.

A few don't want to see him go off to the calaboose.

That's better...
