    You can not blame this on the house. They have passed many budgets but not even a look though by Harry Reid. He should be fired!!

    The house budget was voted on and returned to the house with senate amendments, we are stuck in the reconciliation phase where negotiations are supposed to take place between the house and senate. It was attempted, even Obama got into the act, the house was offered a sweetheart deal and walked away and not been back to the table since. The budget process starts over in Feb. and it will be the same shit, different year.

    House Republicans are too busy reading the Constitution out loud and passing anti abortion measures to do anything useful.

    They will lose seats in November.

    Whats the Dems excuse for no budget??

    I think the Senate Dems will lose seats in Nov.

    In fact. I think they will lose the Senate and they sure won' t take the House.

    Guess they will be the party in the back of the bus.

    Wonder if the Reps will tell em to STFU??

    Why has there not been a budget in 1000 days?....see my Avatar.
    You can save the picture and re-use it to explain the failures of our government for the last 30 years.

    The Senate cannot fulfill it's role in the budget process without the house being cooperative in some measure. If the house is unwilling to compromise during the reconciliation phase then there will be no budget.

    Not to worry folks, Dear Ruler will just borrow more money from China to trade with the moochers for votes.

    So whats new, the country is freaking broke, people live in a delusional state of denial with the thought that it will all pass to the next generation and not effect them in the here and now. Some think that there is no end and that we can just tax our way back to prosperity without understanding basic economics and the numbers, and others understand that cuts are coming and lack the guts to tell the truth. I would not suggest holding ones breath it's going to get ugly.
