Cancelled: There Will Be No Congressional Budget This Year
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s (D-MD) announcement this morning that House Democrats will not pass a budget this year – failing to fulfill what he has called “the most basic responsibility” of governing.

Why bother passing a budget they don’t intend to follow anyway?
Let the pillaging and looting continue!!!
How are the congressional approval ratings doing?(Whatever they are, it’s too high.)

The majority of my friends and peers (college-educated, many w/Master's Degrees)are NOT traveling/vacationing as we have formerly. We are families w/children at home; we're thinking about college tuition, ever-increasing taxes and declining property values. Until the current administration is ejected from the White House, virtually no one with whom I associate has the desire to spend any extra discretionary income.

Nice try on this article, but I don't buy it, neither do my neighbors, my family and others. If you are a zillionaire, and now just a billionaire, things are fine. if you are a multimillionaire and now just 2 millionaire, things are fine. But if you are middle class, or were, lower middle, or low and sometimes upper, you haven't seen a thing change. Todoloo for now.

My friends and peers appear similar to yours on paper but thankfully have a more positive outlook on life. Maybe time for you to find new friends.

The travel consultants sound like real estate agents with their positive spin on everything. It's always starting to return to good times, people out vacationing like the good times ect. None of them will admit business is crap and has been for three years with about half their fellow workers layed off or looking for work in other fields. They love to push the feel good times are back but it's just wishfull thinking.

I wonder how the writer of the article determines that the economy is slowly turning around. The economy is not going to improve over the long term as long as the government keeps encroaching on the private sector.

No one is going to do any pillaging and looting. Those us us who have it (and I do) protect it from the whiners VERY casrefully! Here's how it works: I make about $1000/hour and I pay my pool boy about $7.50/hour. Do the math.
