So when can we expect the House agree to this budget so the President can sign it into law?

Maybe never. They passed it by a razor thin 50-49 margin. That should tell you something about what it's worth.

"The plan calls for nearly $1 trillion in new taxes over the next ten years. The $3.7 trillion blueprint for 2014 was approved on a mostly partisan vote of 50-49, with four Democrats who are up for re-election in red states in 2014 joining Republicans in opposition.

The Senate budget includes $100 billion in upfront infrastructure spending designed to stimulate the economy. It would also fast-track passage of tax increases to raise $975 billion over 10 years. The plan leaves the government with a $566 billion deficit in 10 years, and $5.2 trillion in additional debt over that time, the New York Times reports."

Some budget plan. Increased taxes, increased spending and increaed debt.
Is that really the best they could do?
It wont stand a chance in the House.

Since the Democrats in the Senate couldn't get their majority to go along with it? Probably not ever which is a great thing since despite what Biden and Obama think, we cannot spend ourselves into prosperity.

It tells me that the GOP, aka Grand Obstructionist Party, couldn't filibuster it!

Of course it tells you that since you have zero clue about the published FACT that there were several Democrats who sided with those dreaded Republicans in voting AGAINST this so called "budget" put forth by Dirty Harry and his gang of dirty Dems.

Too bad for America they couldn't. The Grand Obstructionist Party is the only keeping us from having to chant in unison "Viva La Amerika!"

Obama's great "Hope & Change" farce just resulted in yet another volley to spend like drunken monkeys on the tax payers' grand childrens' dime, and you dolts actually have the lack of sense to crow about supporting Barry Hussein Bush.

No time clock, I just have to log onto the system.

BTW, the only way a person qualifies for the earned income credit is by working for an NFIB member who pays substandard wages.... You can recognize them at any CPAC rally!

I think the House should just pass it!
You know,.... sometimes you have to vote for something, before you read the bill, and know whats in it!
Letting the progressives pass this budget could be the best thing that happened for the GOP in years.
When those higher taxes start hitting the middle class in their pocket book, and the debt goes up another %5.6 trillion, people will take notice!
Well, except for Bob, and Ginger,.....they dont pay taxes. But most others will notice the reduction in their paychecks.
Obama can still count on their votes in 2016!
