Democrats "Deem" to have passed a budget.. So they can Spend baby Spend
"If you can't budget, you can't govern," Rep. John Spratt Jr., D-S.C., proclaimed in 2006 when the House GOP leadership chose to dispense with passing a budget resolution.
"Now that the Dems run the House, Spratt is chairman of its Budget Committee and the April 15 deadline for passing a budget resolution is a niggling detail, easily ignored. House Democrats have decided to not even try to pass a budget resolution before this fiscal year expires on Sept. 30 -- and may well delay passage until after the November elections."

"In April, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had assured reporters that her House would pass a real budget resolution. But the far left wants to spend more, while the center left wants modest cuts in spending -- or at least not to be tied to the far left's bills that further increase the national debt. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/06/22/if_you_cant_budget_...
The Democrats don't want to face going into November with the real story of just how much debt this administration has and is racking up and just how much more debt they want to give us..
We are tired of the shell games.. Just like any old con game it's gets a bit weary after being taken time and time again. It is time to take out the trash starting in November.
