Democrats’ Three Years Of No Budget Is All About Deception

They don’t want taxpayers to know about the trillions they’re wasting. A published budget would be an election-year death warrant for Senate Democrats, because Republican Senate candidates would stuff its highlights into every mailbox they could. – IBD

The last time the Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate passed a budget was April 29, 2009 — 1,000 days ago.


As Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., points out, going budget-less for so long has devastated our economy as Democrats have spent “$9.4 trillion and added $4.1 trillion to the national debt,” plus over $1 trillion in deficits.


A budget, according to the president 1,000 days ago, is necessary “to lay a new foundation for growth.” He praised Reid’s 2009 budget for its massive new spending, like “new investments in renewable energy that will create millions of jobs and new industries, new investments in health care that will cut costs for families and businesses, and new savings that will bring down our deficit.”

Since Obama gave those assurances, the jobs haven’t materialized, health insurance premiums have risen significantly in expectation of ObamaCare and the deficit has skyrocketed.
