I see you have no problem jumping all over the Ryan budget and the Republicans in general. Of course there is no extreme partisanship among the Democrats, right? Also, you are being a little unfair to us Republicans.

The Democrat Senate controlled by Harry Reid has not put forth a budget for anyone to find fault with for four years now, even though it is the Senate's job to do so.

Also, President Barack Obama himself has had his budgets voted down by that same Democratic-controlled Senate by votes of 97-0 and 99-0. Not one Democrat voted for his budget.

This year, Obama has failed to put forth a budget as required by law by the end of February and is in no hurry to do so. If you looking for ignorance, stupidity, insanity, etc., look no farther that the Democratic Party.

From what I have seen for the last 50 years, someone has been failing all along to educate and integrity is completely foreign to most liberal politicians.
