Congress Shirks Their Budgetary Duties

I could probably use that headline in half the posts I write, but it's particularly appropriate when Congress won't pass a budget this year for the first time since 1974.

The news came from Rep. Hoyer himself, who said “It’s difficult to pass budgets in election years because they reflect what the [fiscal] status is.” In other words, with November looming on the horizon, the left doesn’t want their constituents to realize just how much Congress is spending and how high taxes will go.

The budget is a framework the federal government uses to set spending, but since Democrats don't care about spending, why pass a budget?

I'm thinking about sending Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama copies of Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover, but I'm not even sure they can read at this point.
