The president offered a budget to the Senate. They rejected unanimously rejected it (414-0).
Not a single member of the president’s own party supported it.
On the other hand, Republicans did pass their own budget in the House.
On the other hand, the Democratically-controlled Senate has not even bothered to submit a budget for 1070 days.
Jay Carney, the president’s press secretary, blames the Republicans.
I’m serious. He claims it is a lack of bipartisanship on the part of the Republicans that is the root cause of the Senate’s refusal to even submit a budget. This comes from the spokesman for the party that crammed Obamacare down our throats without a single vote from the opposition party.
Keep in mind, the Senate could pass a budget without a single Republican vote. They don’t even need bipartisanship to submit and pass a budget. But they refuse, because they do not want to take the political heat.
Folks, such as members of the Tea Party, who embrace the ideal of limited government are mischaracterized by the Left and their media lapdogs as being small-minded. If Democrats truly want to continue this unparalleled growth in the size of government, they should do the honorable thing and present a budget and take the heat for it.
