Continuing budget resolutions, No official budget


Last Edited: April 8, 2011, 11:02 pm

Something is going on here with no official budget for the year 2011. Is this going to continue until the end of the fiscal year? The administration is finding reasons they will not pass an official budget. They are fighting right down to the bitter end.

They looking to set a precedent for some reason. They keep fighting over spending and the administration wants to maintain spending levels.

The democrats have brung out their demonstrators for the fight and have ratcheted up their talking points for support. Looks like that is going to continue too.

The dems do not want spending cuts. They want to continue their spending agenda.

They are also using up a lot of time that could be used for the next fiscal year budget. I can see that is going to be a long drawn out affair also.

Well I just heard the speeches. They passed another short term bill until next week. Apparently to give them time to draft the legislation.
See what happens next week.

The president said they need to work on cutting spending. So lets see where they are going to be allowed to cut spending.
We go trillions to work on not some paltry 50 billion in this budget that was cut. They was kicking their feet over over a few billion cut.

YEAH , It's crazy, I don't want anyone out of a job, but on the other hand I don't think my tax dollars should go for free condoms either.
