    The Senate hasn't passed a budget for 2012FY they haven't even introduced a real budget resolution. They won't even bring up the House 2012 Budget up for a vote.


    H Reid is a joke, over 900 days without a Senate Budget.

    Dems voted against it because they wanted more spending (what happened to the promised cuts from the last CR?


    The Tea PArty pubs are holding out for spending cuts.

    The house hasn't reported out a serious budget, because they're convinced that they can just say "no" to everything -- such as amending their treasured medicare-as-coupon-book "reform."

    Of course nobody's voting on their "budget."

    Unfortunately caught in the middle of all of this are disaster relief funds that would directly impact families... the Republicans threatened to hold hostage, and then renegged and now they did.

    So you want to add another ring to the already two ring pig circus???

    What different would it make if they produce a budget or not, all it would do is impede any resolution more than it already has????...

    The right is so focused on whatever Reid, Pelosi and Obama does is bad, they have forgotten to focus on what is good for America and their constituents.

    Fire them all!

    Kick them all out on there asses, they have no business running our country anymore, a wise man once said:

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
    ― Abraham Lincoln

    “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.”
    ― Abraham Lincoln

    "We believe that the government needs to serve the people and that the people should not have to be afraid of its own government. Rather, if the government had a healthy fear and respect for the people,
    democracy would thrive and the doorway to tyranny would be locked tight."

    And my fav:

    "We believe People have the right to bear arms and the duty to overthrow their Government when it fails to perform and when resolution and legislation fail to correct it."

    It wasn't so much telling that Dems voted against it as that 48 Republicans broke ranks and voted against it, as well.

    And "spending cuts" weren't the only reason that they did.

    Many of the Republicans who voted against it did so because they represent areas hard hit by the recent floods - they did not want federal help tied to equal spending cuts - they want their money and they want it now - without strings.

    The Congress, the senate, the president, the vice president and all others involved AT THIS TIME in the running of this government are the most horrible filthy maggotly group of rotten scum on the face of this earth.

    Many of them and their slobbering ass kissers who constantly complain about the Tea Party are themselves to blame for the Tea Party, THE SCUMSUCKING POLITICIANS CREATED THE NEED FOR THE TEA PARTY AND MAKE NO MISTAKE THE TEA PARTY IS GROWING, THE TEA PARTY WILL NOT GO AWAY THE TEA PARTY IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE REVOLUTION AGAINST THE FILTH WE HAVE IN WASHINGTON.

    OBAMA'S SPIRITUAL ADVISOR ONCE SAID "GOD DAMN AMERICA" OBAMA SAT IN THE FRONT PEW, HE DIDN'T GET UP AND WALK OUT, HE SAT THERE FOR 20 YEARS.

    ALLAH ACKBAR

    Be careful what you ask for...a revolution may result in a gov't that is MORE right wing.

    Neither I nor you can assume that most Americans agree with our perspective...you never know.

    And if there were to be a revolution...it WOULD be televised.
