Here we go again. I wish someone would develop a spine in Washington. Both parties need to get a budget together NOW.

Legislation passed by the Republican controlled House...?


Who is blocking a budget?

The only "crisis" here is strictly GOP manufactured. There was no crisis the OTHER 90 or so times the debt ceiling was raised.

How many budgets have the Senate passed?

No one cares.

They just like to blame the Senate for the Republican controlled House passing the least amount of legislation than any in American history.

Again, that's 3%.

When you have facts to present besides rhetoric, let us know.

To "Pagan" the House has pasesed budgets that the Senate won't even look at.

Who care's how many bills are passed. As far as I am concerned if they only passed a budget that would be great.

The crisis has not been averted, just delayed. If it was averted, we wouldn't be looking at it again in May.

Yeah, good job Republican party.

The Average House member makes $175,000 per year.

And we pay them that, to pass 3% of legislation.

If I had a 10% approval rate at my job? I would loose it.

To "Pagan" don't think of it as passing 3% of legislation. Think of it as stopping 97% of bad legislation.
