Demonstrating the Obama and Democrat addiction to reckless spending, House leadership has decided to just forget a budget. These people should be tarred and feathered and driven from office not just voted out. See the coming destruction of America here: DEBT CLOCK

Congressional Democrats have decided it’s impossible to pass a budget this year, and instead will impose one-year spending limits while trying to lay the groundwork for long-term budget restraint.

House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer said Tuesday a budget, which sets out binding one-year targets and a multiyear plan, is useless this year because Congress has shunted key questions about deficits to the independent debt commission created by President Obama, which is due to report back at the end of this year.

The House and Senate don’t always agree on a final budget compromise, but the House itself has never failed to pass its own version of the spending blueprint.

The decision leaves much of the rest of Democrats’ agenda in doubt and drew ridicule from Republicans, who pointed out Mr. Hoyer himself has deemed passing a budget a basic test of the ability to govern.

The Maryland Democrat, though, said that this year there’s no point.
