Sunday marks the third anniversary since the last time Senate Democrats proposed and passed a budget.
Senate Republicans aren’t exactly celebrating, but want to make sure the milestone doesn’t go unnoticed.
“The last time Senate Democrats passed a budget, a gallon of gas cost about half what it does now, the debt was $4.5 trillion dollars less than it is today, and ObamaCare was just a twinkle in the president’s eye,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).
“Their lack of leadership has led to a national debt that is not only larger than the economy but also surpasses the combined debt of the Eurozone and the UK,” he added. “The road out of a fiscal crisis starts with a responsible budget, and Republicans are ready to sit down and make the hard choices that entails.”
“Working without a budget is no way to run a business and it’s certainly no way to run the world’s biggest government,” said Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio).
A very merry unbirthday to the nonexistent Senate budget!
