Of course the Democrats will pass a budget this year, because, if they do not the Republicans will shut down their Royal Kingdom. No more million dollar vacations, no Wednesday parties, no more of the good life.

Those criminals would just double their salaries before they signed it. It should be agreed they get nothing if they don't get the spending cuts before they lower the debt level. Lord knows they are fat enough on what they have already stolen, but they love money, and they love the cushy life.

This is probably the most corrupt Administration we have ever sworn in. They are straight out of the corrupt Chicago playbook.

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.

It wasn't just the Republicans that shot down Obama's budget. The Dmocrats would not vote for it either. All the budgets Obama submitted got zero votes. No on wanted their name on them.

Dumbass, why would you say you'll pass a budget because of REPUBLICANS?

Pass a damn budget because it's YOUR JOB, moron. That's why this country's so poorly run - we have a party of religious crypto-nazis stifling any change, and a party of 'change' which is hopelessly inadequate, inept, and cowardly.

Good god, America, is this the best we can DO??

Which of course hasn't stopped far-right whiners (like you) from complaining that 'Obama doesn't have/can't pass a budget,' of course.

If Obama cannot get his own party to vote with him there is a problem with the budget that has nothing to do with Republicans. The last budget was passed in 2009 under G W Bush. Not one budget has been passed under President Obama. Not one. The budget lays out where the money will be spent for the year, and the Democrats do not want a public record of their spending.

Right wingers are the problem????

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.
