What, a budget every 4-5 years isn't good for Reid anymore?

2 years or 4 years, matters less when they do not understand what they read and the lawyers of K-Street write the documents for them.

The Democrats cannot have a budget. It would become a matter of public knowlege, and they keep their spending secret so they can skim their part off the top.

Harry Reid is a failed democrat leader. Democrats need to elect someone else. He's a very negative personality with poor communication skills. Just not a good advocate for democrats. No one wants to 'hear' what he says; much like John Boehner. Two losers in communication skills.

Cruz made excellent, excellent points, but unfortunately, some democrat at the meeting supplied Feinstein with the point that pornography violated Bill of Rights that Cruz was arguing about.

Cruz DEFINITELY got under Feinstein skin (WTG!, Senator Cruz, he's intelligent and has the balls to confront-please no more WIMPS in the Republican party)

Senator Cruz was a quiet gentleman when he asked the questions. Feinstein let her emotions take hold. Suck it up, Senator Feinstein!

Keep on, keeping on, Senator Cruz!

Omnibus spending bills & temporary spending agreements DO NOT count.

The last budget was signed into law in 2008 by President George W Bush 1417 days ago. It expired October 1, 2009, No budget has been signed into law under Barack Hussein Obama.

Nice try!
The United States federal budget for fiscal year 2009 began as a spending request submitted by President George W. Bush to the 110th Congress. The final resolution was approved by the House on June 5, 2008.The final spending bills for the budget were not signed into law until March 11, 2009 by President Barack Obama, nearly five and a half months after the fiscal year began.

It was still the Bush budget. Obama has never been able to pass a budget since he was sworn into office the first time. Every budget he has submitted has been rejected, even by Democrats 99 to 0. Shortly they will reject another of his gems!!

That little piece of propaganda was debunked years ago cupcake. The Bush recession ended in 2009......you know, years ago. The rest is Obama wasting money on shovel ready jobs (AKA Union Payoffs)and green energy companies here and outsourced overseas.

Bush didn't sign it because Pelosi had inflated it so much. By the way, Obama then added 19% to the amount and wouldn't sign it either........there by blaming Bush for the money spent.

LMAO...not hardly, peanut.

The deficits were due to the massive demorat entitlement programs and slick willies book juggling bogus surplus......the dot.com base that he had placed in on busted due to Chinese and other countries pirating software and computers. When the bust came..you clowns tried to blame Bush for losing a surplus that never existed.

Fairytales, blame, false claims, tossing taxpayer money to whoever has a story or green energy con game......the American demorat party.

How could it be Bush deficits? He has been out of office over 4 years. There has been no budget under Obama. He just spent money like we had it, and borrowed 90% of what he spent. He is a very stupid man, not a leader by any stretch of the imagination, and is not nearly finished destroying America. The difference is now he has the attention of his beloved Democrats too. If you want to know how much they respect the President, watch how well he does with the gun ban.
