    To commemorate this momentous occasion, the Senate Budget Committee Republican staff under Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on Monday released the following chart illustrating the senate’s inaction:

    I heard on the Mark Levin show and I don't know if true...

    The reason there hasn't been a new budget passed is the administration is using the existing budget from his first year.
    The first year had the stimulus money in it.
    That means he has a budget with plenty of spending allowed based on a budget that had
    the big stimulus money in it.

    No wonder why they are OK with no new budget...

    They are doing it because they can. Reed won reelection he can do anything. Can't wait until the liberal left chirps in that it is the fault of Repulicans.

    They're doing it because the right wingers perpetually threaten a filibuster. Just because they can.

    a budget is passed every year you dupes. If a budget was not passed, the Govt would come to a halt. Seriously, some of you need to take a basic Govt 101 all over again.

    A 6th grader knows this sort of basic shit.

    When a new budget is not passed they use a continuing resolution I think it's called
    which means that they use the budget from the previous year.
    This allowed the President to have a budget that included the stimulus dollar amount.
    This allowed the administration to keep the spending levels up.
    Ask where did that money come from.
    We probably borrowed it or printed new money.

    Barney Frank on Balancing the Budget: ‘I Don’t Think Balance is Logical’
    December 20, 2012 -- Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) does not think it is “logical” to achieve a balanced federal budget “from the standpoint of a whole economy” because the relationship between budget and government is different from that of budget and individual.

    Failed Obama Administration leadership is being passed off as something other than it is by his commie stools and the complicit media.

    Don't allow it.
