Enough is Enough...

Senate Majority Leader - Harry Reid

It's been over 1,000 days since the democratic Senate has put forth and passed a budget. It appears yet another 365 days will pass for Harry Reid and the Senate. So much for adhering to an effective national budgeting process.

I'm quite confident this new attitude may be a part of the new "Keynesian" order of spend, spend, spend, and then spend some more without regard for fiscal restraint, responsibility, and indeed even sanity. Welcome to the new age economics. Tailor made for today's politicians and national leadership.

Daily Caller - budget this year, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters Friday, saying that they had already done so with the debt-ceiling agreement.

“We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year — it’s done, we don’t need to do it,” Reid said, according to The Hill.

Democrats have said that the agreement reached to raise the debt ceiling set spending for Fiscal Year 2012.

North Dakota Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad, chairman of the Budget Committee, has said he will mark up a budget resolution this year, per an agreement he made with Budget Committee ranking member and Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions.

Technically, Conrad marking up a budget resolution, but not ever bringing it to the floor, per Reid’s comments, does not violate that agreement, conceded a Republican aide, but the staffer went on to blast Reid’s comment.

“What’s the point of marking up a budget if you’re not going to bring it to the floor for debate and vote?” fumed the Republican aide.

“It’s been more than 1,000 days since Senate Democrats have offered a budget plan to the American people. Now, once again, the Senate’s ineffectual Democrat majority balks at the task of leadership,” said Sessions in a statement.

Of course there is more from the incompetent and ineffectual Majority leader and his sidekick Senator Schumer.

The Hill Sessions argued Senate Democrats don’t want to spell out a long-term budget plan for fear of public scrutiny.

"[Reid] obviously continues in his belief that it would be politically foolish for his members to go on record in support of any long-term vision," he said. "But by refusing to lay out a budget plan for public examination — a fact no one can deny — the Democrat Senate has forfeited the high privilege to lead this chamber."

Schumer said it’s a "total falsity" for Republicans to say that Democrats haven't passed the budget.

"We passed it on Aug. 2," Schumer said, referring to the debt deal.

"They're attacking us because they have nothing better to do," Reid added. "They need something else to talk about." {Read More}

Indeed, given the republicans and the democrats lack of concern for the fiscal stability and well being of the nation perhaps it is time to really send a message. Through everyone of the damn bums out with the bathwater. Enough is enough.
