Senate must do its duty, pass annual budgets

2013-10-20T00:00:00Z Senate must do its duty, pass annual budgets
October 20, 2013 12:00 am

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the liberal progressive Democrats have not done their constitutional duty to pass a budget in the last four years.

Now they want to be Tea Party constitutionalists and "go by the book " to do their job.

The House of Representatives Tea Party constitutionalists have passed yearly budgets for the last four years only to be "pigeonholed "by the extreme progressive Democrats in the Senate and President Barack Obama.

Now the Democrats want to blame the Tea Party for not doing their job! Go figure!

It is required by the Constitution to pass a yearly budget!

Extreme liberal progressives want to change or ignore the Constitution. That is the fundamental change coming to America!
