Tell Congress: Demand Democrats Present a Budget!

April 29th will mark the third year in a row that Senate Democrats have refused to produce and pass a budget - and President Obama has said nothing of this intransigence.

April 29th will mark the third year in a row that Senate Democrats have refused to produce and pass a budget - and President Obama has said nothing of this intransigence.

Because of their negligence, the American people have been prone to unbridled spending as Congress continually passes "stop-gap" measures designed to fund the government for short periods of time while avoiding their duty to the American people.

Senator Kent Conrad (D-ND), Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, claimed many times last year that he would produce and pass a budget - which obviously never happened.

Now he's done it again.

Last week, Sen. Conrad claimed once again to be releasing a budget. Sen. Conrad is not running for re-election, and it seemed as though he was going to do what the American people pay him to do: govern. Without the fear of re-election hanging over him, Sen. Conrad should have been able to lay his cards on the table and illustrate to the American people just what "fairness" and "balance" look like to Senate Democrats.

Alas, we should be so lucky.

Literally days later, Sen. Conrad said he would not move a budget, saying:

"This is the wrong time to vote on the floor...I don't think we will be prepared to vote before the election."

Really? This is not the right time to pass a budget that is constitutionally required?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid backed up Sen. Conrad, adding:

"We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year. It's done. We don't need to do it."

Well we know better.

Petition Congress below and tell them that Senate Democrats are violating the 1974 Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act by refusing to produce a budget. DEMAND that they lay their cards on the table and finally show the American people how they would budget our economy, how would they reduce our deficits, and what would they do about entitlements and taxes. It's time Senate Democrats join the conversation about what to do about our grim fiscal future.

If a balanced budget amendment isn't reached in the next two months, all Democrats should be removed from office including the head usurper sitting in the Oval Office!

Why do we need a government at all, because the people we vote in to office is suppose to be working for we the people. We need term limits.

I think since the Democrats do not debate, assume that if they cloak entitlement spending under the umbrella mandatory spending and have never come up with a budget then NO DEMOCRAT GETS PAID! ESPECIALLY OBSCUMBO! THEY ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOBS _ EITHER THIS OR turn in a letter of resignation - because the demos are not doing the job but rather, losers like Sen Conrad and loser Harry Reid make matters worse - I support Senator Rand Pauls Proposal to Revitalize America. I hope it includes Obscumbos incarceration

Why doesn't Washington ever cut their entitlement spending? Why do they keep giving to illegals? The illegals get better care than the elderly who were born, raised and worked hard all their life and paid into the "system" which the Washington crew have destroyed. We need people in Washington who know the ins and outs of running a business. No lawyers, savvy business people. When you do not have the money, you do not spend the money. Give the elderly the same treatment the Washington crew get...healthcare and a fantastic salary the rest of their life. I believe if the Washington crew had to rely on SS and Medicare like the common citizen, then reform would have been done a long time ago. They are supposed to be working for the people instead of us working for them.
