    Blank check, nothing on paper that anyone can be critical of. What will come first, a paper with an actual democrat budget or a paper with Obama's grades in college?......

    BEcause if they commit themselves to something, they are responsible for it. It was the most irresponsible Congress ever. This is why they failed to pass the "clean" bill on the debt ceiling Obama demanded. If they did that, they would be accused in the next election of raising the debt ceiling. If they dont, then they can't be accused of doing it.
    Similarly with the budget.

    The Democrats are the most feckless weasels on earth. They voted many times to condemn the war in Iraq but would never vote to cut off funds. It was simply a show for their supporters. So too here with the budget.
    The GOP are the only adults in the room.

    Who needs a budget, they do not follow it anyway. Its just a waste of time and money and paper.

    The fiscal year starts on 10/1 and often the congresscritters haven't done their job on time. So, usually they pass a continuing resolution then they get the budget done - usually a few months later.

    But, this is crazy. Fucking insane, as a matter of fact.
