Did you know that Congressional Democrats haven’t proposed a budget since the fiscal 2010 one was passed on April 3, 2009.
That’s 27 straight months without a budget proposal from a Democrat in either the House or the Senate, And yet they continue to blame the GOP for the fiscal mess we now find our country in. The first and foremost responsibility of congress is to ENACT a budget each year. It is now 2 years and there is still no budget. The GOP house has passed a budget for 2012 but the DEMS who control the SENATE refuse to vote for it or offer an alternative.
All this talk about raising the debt ceiling is mute since the congress failed in its primary duties to pass a budget. How is anyone supposed to know how much money the government really needs if there is no PROPOSED BUDGET. I say let the government shut down until after the 2012 elections. Think about how much money the US TAXPAYERS will save if all them spend-a-holics where to leave town for a few months. Can you spell R-E-L-I-E-F? Now that sounds like one Government action that would actually be for the Common welfare of the people.
