Democrats Conclude Passing a Budget is Not Necessary

House Majority leader Steny Hoyer(D-MD)announced on Tuesday that the Democrat controlled House will not pass a budget blueprint in 2010. Hoyer's lame excuse? Well, he told the Politico:

“It isn’t possible to debate and pass a realistic, long-term budget until we’ve considered the bipartisan commission’s deficit-reduction plan, which is expected in December."

In response to the news that Dems decided not to bother with a budget, congressional candidate Keith Fimian said:

“Instead of passing a budget resolution focused on cutting wasteful spending and enacting policies to spur economic growth, Gerry Connolly and the rest of the liberal career politicians are running for election year cover,” Fimian said. “Connolly and his fellow big spenders know their constituents oppose their reckless behavior, but they have every intention of continuing it so they are avoiding going on the record with a budget proposal until after Election Day.”

“The failure of Gerry Connolly and Democrats to pass a budget is just one more indication that they have no plans and no intention of controlling out of control deficits and skyrocketing debt,” Fimian said. “Their only interest is securing re-election at the expense of our nation’s future.”

Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., told the Los Angeles Times, "Name one person who won or lost an election because they didn't get a budget resolution passed." Well, come this November we will probably be able to name at least one.
