    Three years and no budget . . . . the first two of which 0bama had sizable majorities in both houses . . . . 0bama votes yet again PRESENT . . ., as in a vegetable, albeit a very intelligent one.

    The Senate needs 60 votes so the problem is not Obama.

    60 Votes?? He got 0. Not a single vote from either side. He was working with a majority in both houses for two years. He doesn’t want a budget. That would would make him accountable for his actions.

    Dude, the vote was 99 to zero, got it? NO ONE voted for it. Now how many senators are democrat? (don’t know where the one went to). I’m surprised that harry let the bill come to the floor.

    The republicans won’t vote for a plan that raises taxes on their elite constituents; democrats won’t vote for the drastic cuts that fall on the middle-class, that Obama’s plan uses to attempt to appease the republicans.


    The righties on this forum arrive at the conclusion, that Obama should have had more tax increases and less cuts, to get democratic votes.


    I agree.

    Check out the riders on the budget bill. It wouldn’t surprise me to find a bunch on it that even the dimwits in the senate recognize as idiocy.

    Ha! We conservatives blocked Obama’s budget again. Now we can blame him for not having a budget again.

    Congress hasn’t passed one since Obama got in office.They couldn’t be bothered the first two years when the dims had both the house and the senate.Now Harry Ried won’t let the one from the republican house on the floor of the senate.The one Obama proposed had another trillion in new spending so it didn’t make it out of the house.
    You’d think that even the dims would try and keep up with this stuff from time to time,but they are likely stoned and don’t remember much from the last several years or last month,or last week.

    “Harry Ried won’t let the one from the republican house on the floor "


    That’s a distortion of the facts. They voted against lengthy debates, but the senate did vote.


    “In repeated votes, Democrats who control the chamber defeated four Republican proposals, including a plan that passed the House in March.”
    “Indeed, four Republicans joined all 53 Democrats in voting down all of the options”


    Senate votes down 4 GOP budgets


    You should get your facts straight before you accuse others of being stoned.

    Bzzzzt. Wrong. Budgets only require a 51-vote majority.

    @NeoconMan

    How can we block the budget if it only requires 51 votes?

    What really gets me is that “conservatives” and especially the TEA party types, have NO CLUE how the federal budget process works! But, like Lisa, they’ll spout steam and fury, while gagging on the leaves. (Yeah, I know nothing about the process, only working on those budgets and proposals for 32 years.)

    Actually, it isn’t 0bama that is dumb – its those that allow themselves to be fooled by this manipulator -in-chief.
