    Round two of another fiscal crisis is already underway as debate over raising the nation's borrowing limit, better known as the debt ceiling, heats up.

    Majority leader Harry Reid has blatantly ignored the law by failing to introduce a budget for more than 1300 days.

    House Republicans on the other hand have fullfilled their duty to the law by introducing and passing a budget every year since Obama has been in office.
    As Byron York points out, Reid's actions could give Republicans some leverage when it comes to satisfy Presindent Obama's request to increased borrowing (and spending) ability.

    I want to stress again that Reid has been ignoring the law by refusing to not only pass a budget in the Senate, but by failing to even introduce one.

    So the hostage takers have made their demands? Did the Republicans cut out all the letters from the magazines themselves for this message to Reid?

    Hey GOP, you aren't doing yourselves ANY favors...

    But watch, it will be reported in most of the media that expecting a budget after 4yrs without one is unreasonable, and the country will default!!!

    Poor America, lord help us all.

    So as long as you win the opinion polls, you can screw America, not do your job and not pass a budget, as the Senate has not done in four years.

    Interesting stance.

    The last GOP President to balance a budget was Nixon. Get over yourselves and the fucking budget. Holding the full faith and credit of the US hostage isn't some fucking game.

    It's not a game, but right off the bat, you bring out poll numbers.

    Sounds like a hypocrite to me, want to try again?
