Well, if not a budget, how about figuring out how to pay for Obamacare once you realize that only the old, infirm and indigent, but no healthy young, have signed up?

Taxes Apply only to the working middle class. How much can they realistically expect? It's not as if the unemployment situation has improved.

Apparently, you didn't read it...

"The two-year budget deal Murray negotiated with Republican House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan late last year came in the wake of a bitter fight over fiscal 2014 funding that led to a 16-day government shutdown last October.

It provided modest relief from automatic "sequester" spending cuts and set annual spending levels on military and domestic discretionary programs at just over $1 trillion for fiscal 2014 and for fiscal 2015, which begins October 1.

House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Thursday that Republicans, who control the chamber, intend to pass a 2015 "balanced budget" authored by Ryan.

Ryan told Reuters he will wait until after Obama's budget rollout to unveil his own plan, and added that there was little time pressure to move quickly on his plan because 2015 spending levels were already settled."

Democrats don't want a budget debate for political reasons, as plainly stated,

"The decision by Murray not to go through the motions of passing a budget also will allow Senate Democrats to avoid an open amendment process that allows any senator to seek vote on any amendment to the budget - a process known as a "vote-a-rama" that could last days.

With November congressional elections looming, Democrats are concerned that this could devolve into a series of partisan votes that could be used in campaign advertising."

Feel stupid?

You should.

Spending is only half of what is needed to make a budget.
Revenue projections are also needed.
Typical Progressive. Get the job half-done and hang the consequences.

After 5 years of unlimited budgetless spending sprees under this administration, and with an open ended debt ceiling. What incentive do the libs have to operate under a constraining budget ? Absolutely no incentive.
