Federal law requires that each chamber of Congress introduce and pass a budget resolution every single year. Lest we forget, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives fulfilled their legal responsibilities for the past two years, and will do so again in 2013. By contrast, Senate Democrats -- presumably because they’re afraid to submit a budget plan that addresses out-of-control entitlement spending -- have shirked this responsibility for 1400 straight days. Instead, they’ve been on the offensive for years, blaming “Republican obstructionists” for their running failure, even though Republicans cannot legally filibuster budget proposals. In short, Democrats could easily pass a budget if they wanted to (they only need 51 total votes), but decided long ago that demonizing the opposition makes for better politics.

And so to mark this shameful milestone, the House Republican Conference released a video today pointing out that since American families have to budget their finances every year, Senate Democrats should be held to the same standard:

Good news: the Democrats will reportedly introduce and pass a budget this year. And so what if it’s entirely because Republicans forced their hand? At least Democrats will put their ideas on paper, and Americans will finally see how Reid & Co. intend to cut spending, balance the budget, and reduce the deficit. This ought to be interesting.

Who is the leader of the Democrat Party and it's band of Bumbling IDIOTS???

'Sequestration Scare Tactics'

Instead of trying to hammer out a bipartisan solution with Congress Tuesday, President Obama took his sequester scare tactics to the Commonwealth of Virginia. His teleprompter was loaded with same irresponsible rhetoric that we heard exactly a week ago. Hannity put together this highlight reel to illustrate the similarity. Do not adjust your screen. This is not deja vu you're seeing.

Funny & So Typical
