    Worst U.S. Senate in History? You bet.


    Senate Democratic leaders do not plan to propose a budget this year, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters Friday, saying that they had already done so with the debt-ceiling agreement.

    “We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year — it’s done, we don’t need to do it,” Reid said, according to The Hill.

    Democrats have said that the agreement reached to raise the debt ceiling set spending for Fiscal Year 2012.

    North Dakota Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad, chairman of the Budget Committee, has said he will mark up a budget resolution this year, per an agreement he made with Budget Committee ranking member and Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions.

    Technically, Conrad marking up a budget resolution, but not ever bringing it to the floor, per Reid’s comments, does not violate that agreement, conceded a Republican aide, but the staffer went on to blast Reid’s comment.

    “What’s the point of marking up a budget if you’re not going to bring it to the floor for debate and vote?” fumed the Republican aide.

    “It’s been more than 1,000 days since Senate Democrats have offered a budget plan to the American people. Now, once again, the Senate’s ineffectual Democrat majority balks at the task of leadership,” said Sessions in a statement.

    “He obviously continues in his belief that it would be politically foolish for his members to go on record in support of any long-term vision. But by refusing to lay out a budget plan for public examination—a fact no one can deny—the Democrat Senate has forfeited the high privilege to lead this chamber,” he went on.

    It's not the senate's job to propose the budget, the process must start in the house. Are republicans going to make one? It seems the normal process has been derailed, they had to hotwire the process to keep things going. Thank the teabaggers.

    Yep. Last I heard the Reps in the House did a budget and sent it to the Senate.

    Of course its one of those bills gathering dust on Reids desk.

    Last I heard Barry did a budget also and his Dem Senate kicked that baby right to the curb.

    Yeah. Reids a winner.

    It's obvious democrats believe money grows on trees....

    The economic mental retardation democrats possess is mind-boggling.

    Why bother with a budget when you can just print what you need.

    Unbelievable.

    The budget process for 2013 was scheduled to start any day now. It officially starts the first or second Monday in Feb. with the president's budget proposal to the house then they make their own and then they vote and if passed it then goes to the senate who then vote no and then propose their own budget. The debt ceiling deal made all this unnecessary this year, keep up.

    I doesn't say "Senate will not PROPOSE a budget" it says "Senate will not PASS a budget".

    Dems, the party of 'we'll spin this to make the Republicans look bad'.
