Senate democrats TWO YEARS overdue in passing a budget (Updated)

(Update at bottom)

Put antother way, there has not been a federal budget since Obama took office.

Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), the ranking member on the Budget Committee, spoke about the absent budget on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday:

…it has been 742 days since the Senate passed a budget. The Democrat-led Senate has missed the statutory April 15th deadline two years in a row. Is it any wonder this nation is going broke? We are in the middle of a fiscal crisis, and the Senate—unlike the House—has not even passed, let alone presented, a plan to deal with it.

Democrat Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, Kent Conrad, continues to blow smoke.

  Kent Conrad

Oh, he says he has a “package,”  he says he is very pleased with his package, but where is it?  I could say I had a package for that matter.  After failure to come up with a budget for almost two years now, they still have not come forth with anything.

UPDATE: 

It is a lawful requirement the Senate pass a budget each fiscal year, but for some reason Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Democrats believe they are above the law. Why? Today is day number 952 (NOW 960) since Senate Democrats have passed a budget.

Another inconvenient fact: It is the Republicans who passed — through the House, the only branch of government they control — a real budget that cut $5.8 trillion of spending over the next 10 years. Obama’s February budget, which would have increased spending, was laughed out of the Senate, voted down 97-0. As for the Democratic Senate, it has submitted no budget at all for two and a half years.

This is outrageous!  And where is the corrupt democrat media on this LAWLESSNESS?  Complete Silence.

  2. I heard Bill Clinton say the other day it’s impossible to pass a budget in a crashed economy. I swear that’s his excuse for the Democrats’s not passing a budget for two years. So when the economy of the country is in a recession, we can’t pass a budget. Except in every other year that we had a recession, and passed a budget. This is how dumb the argument has gotten.

  3. Bella, watch the first video – Bill Clinton you can’t pass a budget in a busted economy. Really the Democrats can just side step their duties if the economy is busted?

    Where is the media calling them to account for this? Oh, yeah, I know, they are busy with their hateful rhetoric against the republicans for not wanting to increase taxes. I guess they think we don’t realize that the democrats spent money wildly for two years against all protests from the people, KNOWING all the while they would just raise taxes later. If the media was anywhere close to being fair they would be blistering the demorats for this malpractice.
    As Santelli said: What have they been doing for two years?

    • Bella,

      The Public bailed out GE – Our government gave them tax payer money. GE owned the majority shares of NBCU – MSNBC is basically is an Obama network. The media has been bought with our money, to be a propaganda arm for the Obama administration. Media malpractice is an understatement. There is no counting on dinosaur media to behave like legitimate news reporting outlets anymore.

        That is so true. Obama media bought by tax money.

        And now the republicans are being demonized for not raising taxes. Let Obama decide what he will pay, medicare or ACORN, medicare or his $100,000 per hour Air Force One flights, You want to talk about tax breaks for the “wealthy?” I am sick, sick, sick of hearing those words. They talk like that about draining productive segments of the country, yet the leeches in Washington produce nothing, just suck up tax money. What about ceasing tax exempt status for democrat front groups like Media 1Matters? Makes me want to scream.
