Pavia_Resistance: Tells me that Republicans are out of touch
timujin: Almet: timujin: MindStalker: timujin: I forget, who is supposed to come up with the federal budget?Constitutionally the House. They have met this, and come up with several budgets that are filled with poison pills and wouldn't pass the Senate.In general the President is supposed to come up with a roadmap for the budget. The constitution states that he "shall... recommend to [Congress's] consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." Obama has done that, but he hasn't given them a budget they can pass either. Mainly because it says Obama on the top.So if I understand this correctly, it's the Senate that is holding up the process? I mean, if they don't like what's in the budget, they could always pass it up to Obama and let him deal with it. Maybe then he wouldn't have so much time to spend on brackets and Lindsey Graham could spend less time whining and more time washing the sand out of his vajayjay.It would get fillibustered by Republicans, even if it came out of the Republican controlled house. I.forget who it was, but there was a Republican Senator who either fillibustered or at least voted against his own bill.Yeah, I remember that, though I believe he was tricked into submitting it. It was quite humorous. My point, though, is that Graham is a whiny biatch who is complaining about the very thing he himself is doing.

Shrugging Atlas: Wasn't there always an unwritten rule that you don't criticize the President while he/she is overseas?
NateGrey: How long do these people thinks it takes to fill out a bracket? I did it in half an hour.
