    In a joint statement, Senate Budget Committee ranking member Jeff Sessions and House Budget Committee chair Paul Ryan mark the milestone.

    “Tomorrow marks another disappointing record for the United States Senate: Senate Majority Leader Reid and his Democrat conference will have gone an unprecedented 1,200 days without adopting a budget plan as required by law," write Sessions and Ryan. "Not only have they failed to adopt a budget, but with America under threat of financial calamity, they have refused to even present a plan for public scrutiny. Last year, Majority Leader Reid said it would be ‘foolish’ to do a budget and the legally required Budget Committee mark-up was cancelled. No plan from his conference has seen the light of day. He refuses to disclose who he plans to tax and how he plans to spend taxpayers’ money."

    Can we wire 20 volts to Harry Ried's nuts ?

    So let us see, all that time and the republicans in the house still cannot get something acceptable together. I guess electing them was pointless as they get nothing done.

    Getting nothing done with Obama at the helm sits just fine with me.

    Listen to yourself, First you complain Nothing get's done, then you Clarify it's Nothing "acceptable". Acceptable to who? Don't Blame the Republicans, they actually passed a Budget your side "deems it unacceptable" and squashed it. The Truth is Harry Ried's Idea of Bipartisan Compromise is doing it his way or no way. Period.

    First, 1200 days reaches back to when the dems had the house too.

    Next, the house under the GOP sent one to the senate which they refused to adopt. It is now their turn to counter which they won't do.
