The Democrats are in charge in the Senate. Surely, they could get a budget passed because they have the votes. But they haven't. For the last two years! They aren't even trying.
Note that in recent years it's been Senators running for the presidency: Gore, Kerry, McCain, Obama.
Really showing some leadership skills, there, guys. Way to round up that budget problem. What say you remind us of how you bravely resisted the urge to do your Constitutional duty to pass a budget the next time you need us to vote for you for anything. Both parties!
