shotglasss: ramblinwreck: Silverstaff: FTFA: "You may not feel it at the moment, but this is one of the Senate's finest days in recent years,"

*sigh*  Because they actually did something?  Because the Republicans didn't fillibuster something?  Because it was a moment of non-gridlock?

The first time in 4 damn years the Senate actually votes on a budget.  Yup, real high point in recent American history.

Can you look up in the Constitution where it says the Senate is supposed to draft the budget? Right, because it says the House...

The law also says the President is to submit a budget by Feb 1. We are still waiting for Obammy to submit his budget.


Start a letter writing campaign to draw up articles of impeachment. This is an outrage!

If the US budget were like someone's household...

Democrats advocating asking for a raise, getting a second job, trying to get the wife to go look for work instead of being a stay at home mom while also cutting back on family vacations or nights out on the town instead of looking to cut the health insurance and gas money.

Republicans are looking to ask for a demotion at work so their boss can hire new employees, talking to the car dealership about a new car that they already planned on getting even though the dealership said their current car is fine and if they don't get it...then it's obvious they hate the troops, all the while sending their kids to school hungry and avoiding taking little Timmy to the dentist.

If your budget argument includes cutting taxes and leaving the defense budget alone while trying to argue that planned parenthood and PBS are killing our financial future, then you are a disengenuous gas bag.

cameroncrazy1984: clowncar on fire: Only once I've exhausted those venues would i then consider bringing in additional income through a second job.  At that point- the onus would be upon me to earn the extra incom and not tell my friends and family that they need to supplement my budget so I could continue to live beyond my means.

And this, friends, is why the government budget is in no way like a household budget.


It's EXACTLY like a household budget. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go mint some more fiat currency while selling no-interest bonds to my own bank to balance my checkbook.

The glaring partisanship of Congress ensures that neither plan will be enacted into law. Instead they will serve as the starting points for a broader debate this year over budget policy.

This suggests a starting at the two ends of the politcal spectrum then meeting somewhere in the middle but thats not the case. The repub-majority House passed a far-right budget with little to no minority input. The dem-majority Senate, to get *anything* passed the obstructionist minority, offered up a centrist if not right-leaning budget from the ton of repub amendments.

Bontesla: likely


For example, it's as likely that Ronald Regan will give the next state of the union.
