House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters today that Democrats may not be able to pass an actual budget resolution this year because too many members will be skittish about voting for a budget with such a gaping deficit during election season, the Hill reports.
Theoretically speaking, Congress is supposed to pass a budget resolution each year, but it can get away without passing one. When Republicans were in control, there were a number of years during which they failed to pass a budget. At the same time, Democrats had pledged to be better stewards than the GOP when they took back Congress.
And either way, this, from Hoyer, sounds pretty weasely: “It’s difficult to pass budgets in election years because they reflect what the [fiscal] status is.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
