Majority Leader Reid has turned into Dark Helmet from Spaceballs.
Notice the similarities:
Thanks to Senator McConnell and Speaker Boehner for going around Senator Reid's intransigence, a deal was made. Ask yourself this, what does Senator Reid get for holding up the deals?
The House passed three (THREE!) Bills to move the debt Debate forward -- all majority leader Reid had to do was go to Conference Committee and work out the differences. It is done on Bills all the time between the House and the Senate. All the time.
Now, let's see what Speaker Boehner is said is within the Debt Deal (all Power Point is from the Speaker's website):
I hope you read the link before you go on........
Now this whole Debt Ceiling debate could have been avoided if the Democrats when they held the majority from 06 - 10 (and currently in the Senate from 06 - present) would be to PASS THE EFFIN APPROPRIATION BILLS!!!!!
Apparently, if you vote for Democrats, they refuse to do the basic job of passing a budget. Keep that in mind next Election Day. If Democrats cannot pass a budget, what are they doing in Congress? Figuring out String Theory?
I'm happy that the 14th Amendment Ruse did not occur (to be discussed on another Blog post); I'm even happier that Congress created a Joint Committee to discuss budget cutting -- it falls under their jurisdiction. But, why, why why, has Majority Leader Reid refused to pass a budget in the Senate for 1,000 days?
Maybe Senator Reid is truly, Dark Helmet.
Spaceballs, Dark Helmet Enters
My question: Why don't Democrats pass Appropriation Bills anymore?
