Of course the majority of "no" votes were Teabaggers. The same ones who voted to keep the govt shutdown.

Without the Dems voting in favor, the budget deal would have failed, just like the effort to reopen the govt would have failed without the Dems.

So the Dems get the credit for reopening the got AND passing this 2 year budget deal.

Teabagging GOPasaurs lose once again!!

I bet you don't remember this is the first budget Obama has ever had to deal with except for the one Bush left him from Oct. 2008. Why do they need a budget this year, and no other? The fact Obama, and the Dems like it so well indicates it is not good for the country. I do wonder how anyone can vote for a budget, and leave the Unemployed out of the whole thing. Oh wait they will add that later. It is like everything else they do half finished.

The Dems have been moving the country forward despite teahadism. Even boner has had enough of these small town, hack vagabonds.

So you support the unemployed being on welfare for 99 weeks?

They should go get a job.

Of course not, but that's what the Teabaggers want.

That way they'll have something else to attempt to blame on President Obama.

Of course the Unemployed should get a job. I think they should have to do volunteer work for the Government money they get. That would do 2 things, it would teach them a work ethic, and they would be too tired to breed like rabbits for us to raise another generation. Americans really are tired of it.

I think just cutting off their unemployment welfare would be more effective at motivating them to get a job.

That is true. My husband says we need the quick as hell unemployment plan. Cut off their money, and they will get jobs quick as hell. It is one thing to help people, it is quite another to take them to raise for generations.

Boehner will rue the day he took on the Taxed Enough Already people. They are already registering new people for the 2016 election where they will elect even more Congressmen, and enough Senators to take back the Senate. Life is good.

The Democrats only have 59 votes for the budget in the Senate, even with the 4 backward Republicans. They still need 60 for a money bill. They better come up with big bucks to buy a Republican!!!
