Pass a budget?

Ha! Not if McConnell has his way they won't.

He will employ his 387th silent filibuster and
everything will come to a grinding halt.

McConnell hasn't the guts to stand up
and filibuster like a man.

Chickensh*t Republicrap.

Ongoing budget resolutions are not 'secret,' lunatic right-winger.
Obama's ongoing discussions tend to be 'secret'-- so much for a transparent administration as promised. Nothing he has done has been transparent -- no hearings on CNN (as promised), raising the debt ceiling, increasing the deficit when he said it was "unpatriotic".
What statistics can anyone show that imply our country is in better fiscal shape today than it was four years ago? Unemployment barely went below 8% and that's not a true figure when you count those jobless who no longer qualify or those who gave up.
Deficit - increased. Debt - increased. Budget - none. Budget cuts - none. Offers to cut spending - none. Raising the debt ceiling - attempting. Spending - increased. Circumventing congress checks and balances - continually.
And Newsweek says he is "The Second Coming"!! Of what???

McConnell (R-Turtlehead) is the worst of the obstructionists currently plaguing Congress and the nation. Over the last few years, he had literally become a bigger threat to America than bin Laden.

It's past time he was retired to his terrarium.

And this post is more asinine than most you make, Professor Fartsack. Again, thank GOD Almighty you are absolutely without any influence or power in the real world.

A budget I'm sure the GOPasaurs in the Senate will attempt to filibuster and the GOPasaurs in the House won't even consider.
Why even bother.
Just keep passing continuing resolutions and hope the Dems can take the House in 2014 so we can actually get something done again.
A lie in a tu tu is still a lie. The House is going to attach to their bill that the Senate and their staffs payroll is to be put in escrow until they pass a budget as the law requires.

So a Senate filibuster in the open by Republicans is not o.k., but pocket vetos of duly-passed House legislation by Reid IS o.k?

For golf legend Phil Mickelson, the low 60s makes for a great score on the links — and a lousy tax rate in his home state of California.
Mickelson said “drastic changes” are ahead for him due to federal and California state tax increases that have pushed his tax rate to what he figures adds up to “62, 63 percent.” The left-hander will talk more about his plans — possibly moving out of California or even retiring altogether — before his hometown Farmers Insurance Open, the San Diego-area event that begins Thursday at Torrey Pines.
California has been run by left wingers for the last 45 fkn years. Companies leaving, businesses closing..
Your system sucks. California is estimated to lose 3.5 million in taxes when Mickleson leaves.
Brilliant.
If Michelson doesn't want to live with a 62% tax rape he should move to a sanely governed State.

UHaul has so many rentals leaving lunatic left Calif that you are required to pay a sur charge. Seems NO ONE is moving to Calif but illegal aliens so the trucks have to dead head back to Calif. Last Election, the Dems actually elected an old fossil nicknamed MoonBeam as Governor. He just got the drooling zombie mob to pass a $50 BILLION State tax increase. The largest of any State in American history.

Good to note that the "calif" variety of Democratic voters are the most politically ignorant losers and unfit parents ever to breath American air so it is increasingly common for responsible middle class families to leave the State.

It's not an "extra 2%," liar. It's the same 2% you were paying until you got a year or two off due to the recession. And Congress passed the compromise bill which put it back in there.

Of course, lying about taxes is second nature to righties...

Righties lost the election hating on the "47%ers," and yet continue the same ol' song going into the NEXT election. You know what I say to that? HUH???
