    Hopefully the right wing will catch the blame again if they shut down the government. Haven’t seen much of Cantor since he caused the lowering of the US credit rating.

    Perhaps Mr. Bennett was actually paying attention, since there were indeed budgets passed during most of those years (up through FY2010).

    Tigger, why are you not demanding that the House pass a budget this year? The Senate passed a budget back in March, but the GOP goons in the House can’t even get a simple farm bill passed, much less a budget.

    When the Republicans (House and Senate) passed a budget and Clinton vetoed it in ‘95, the voters blamed the Congress for the aggravation of the slowdown and re-elected Clinton by a big plurality over Dole and reduced the Republican majority in Congress in the ’96 election.


    One of the comments on this site pointed out to me that the Republicans, in spite of that vote, won big in ’94. I’d completely missed that point.


    As a result, Republicans are deathly afraid of a government shutdown. But their hoping that near-shutdown brinkspersonship will bring some concessions from President Obama.


    Recent history (‘09 – present) is on they’re side.

    “Mr. Bennett, where were you from January 2007 until January 2011 when The Democrats controlled The House and Senate and never passed a Budget?”

    There was a budget passed in April 2009.

    Technically, that was just an “omnibus spending bill”. The last time a full fledged Federal Budget passed was in 1997, when Newt Gingrich was speaker of the House, (& only on his second wife).

    If you’re (excuse me, your) trying to write like a proper gocomics commentator, be sure to write “suppose to” rather than “supposed to”. Save on pixels, drop the double dental.
