There They Go Again: Senate Democrats Break Promise to Finally Produce a Budget
Andrew Stiles at Washington Free Beacon reports that, despite Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad's promise that the Senate would actually draft a budget and despite the fact that "the chairman’s staff had been coordinating with staffers in preparation for a full markup session complete with multiple votes on amendments," Conrad has now announced that he will not be drafting a budget prior to the 2012 election.
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, the senior Republican on the Budget Committee, says it all:
“Chairman Conrad’s stunning announcement, forced on him by his party, is a defining moment in 2012 and a national embarrassment for a Senate majority that is unable to meet the great challenge of our time.”
All I can say is that with leaders like Harry Reid and his ilk we are doomed. Nero is their role model. We stand at the edge of the abyss and they do nothing. I feel outraged and nauseated.
