    The commiecrats raised the budget base line by nearly 30% on the last budget passed, they know the republican house will reduce that if presented with the opportunity, continuing resolution rules won't allow them to do it either. Thats why the commiecrats are stalling.

    I hope it doesn't create any problems, that door could swing either way.

    The senate didn't agree with the crappy budget the House wanted, like Medicare changes.

    Isn't this the way it's supposed to work?

    House passes a bill, sends it to the Senate for vote, Senate don't like some things and changes some and passes it, sends it back to House to vote, House likes some things but not others, changes some things. House passes bill, sends it back to Senate. If Senate likes it, they pass it and sends it to President. If the President likes it, he signs it and it becomes law. If he don't like it, he vetoes it and sends it back to be done again.

    In this case, House passes budget, sends it to Senate. The Senate sits on it and don't vote on it. House passes another, sends it to Senate. The Senate sits on it and don't vote on it.

    See a pattern? Now, who's being obstructive?
