Whistling Past the Graveyard, brought to you by Screamin' Jay Hawkins and the Democratic Senate. On Wednesday Ryan's budget bill was defeated as expected, Obama's budget was also shot down 97-0. Think about that, Obama couldn't scrounge up a single Democrat to give him a token aye vote.
Meanwhile, the Democrats in the Senate, after two years, still haven't proposed a budget. As John Hinderaker at Powerline said:
The Democrats have no budget; no plan; no path out of the fiscal disaster into which they have led the United States. They are bystanders and political opportunists, utterly unfit to govern.That about sums up my feelings, although I would probably toss in a couple of cuss words for good measure. I shudder at the thought of the demagoguery we're going to have to endure this election cycle.
