Last year the Democrat controlled Senate defeated the Obamination Budget 97-0. Not ONE Dem vote for his two budgets in two YEARS!

 

Certainly makes sense to me. They don't want to be destroyed as a party as the Leebs were in Queenland, Australia this year.

 

What happened to the Dem war cry of no Republican resurgeance for 40 more years that we heard after the 2008 election? Easy! Common sense happened.

Yet our resident 'progressives' claim that they will pick up seats this fall in both the House & Senate, and will retain the White House. They just don't frigging get it. :kook: The worm has turned. :squid:

dosn't this supprort the idea that neither side wants a budget until after the elections?

 

if the dems thought the were going to get crushed in the elections, wouldn't they push hard for a budget before they lost control.

 

 

 

appears to me this is just more partisanship on both sides and americans lose.

 

so why ignore the obvious by supporting this crap with the team cheerleading?

nope says to me that the pols know socialism is a loser and dont want to vote for it. The dems havnt passed a budget in 3 years so that shoots youre premsise they dont want a bdget in an election year down the drain.

 

my prediction the house passes a budget as usual and the dems do nothing then blame the reps.

John my premise is on the current budget. They dems are more confident about november as the GOP are no closer to backing a candidate.

 

 

The dems did want a long term budget, but there was no way the republicans were going to give it to them (and when I say the dems wanted a budget I am nit agreeing wih their budget). The Republicans have been banking on Obama as a one term president and looking to recover from their debacle of 2008. The dems have been cutting short term deals with the republicans,

 

 

 

At this point, there will be no budget at all since both sides believe they will take November.

Partisanship? Hardly. Obama didn't get a vote on either side. This is bipartisanship at it's finest.

WB -

 

It's pretty common knowledge that nobody wanted to vote for the budget in an election year. This is no surprise to anyone, really.

I say hogwash.....had obama gotten a few dem votes then maybe....but he got shut out. zero zip zilch nada......all his fellwo democrats know his is a losing position.

 

Obama is a weak incumbent they know that, he wont have coat tails to drag them along. ........his greatest asset is the side show the reps are calling thier primaries.

Sounds bad, doesn't it? However, the Washington Times [hint, don't waste your MSM card on the Washington Times] says it was a vote on an "unamended" Obama original budget, just for show.

 

Obama budget defeated 414-0

President Obama's budget was defeated 414-0 in the House late Wednesday, in a vote Republicans arranged to try to embarrass him and shelve his plan for the rest of the year.

 

The vote came as the House worked its way through its own fiscal year 2013 budget proposal, written by Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan. Republicans wrote an amendment that contained Mr. Obama's budget and offered it on the floor, daring Democrats to back the plan, which calls for major tax increases and yet still adds trillions of dollars to the deficit over the next decade.

 

"It’s not a charade. It’s not a gimmick — unless what the president sent us is the same," said Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a freshman Republican from South Carolina who sponsored Mr. Obama's proposal for purposes of the debate. "I would encourage the Democrats to embrace this landmark Democrat document and support it. Personally, I will be voting against it."

 

But no Democrats accepted the challenge.

 

They have their own alternative they wrote, which closely tracks the president's deficit numbers, though it changes the details of his plan. That plan will receive a vote on Thursday, as will Mr. Ryan's proposal.Senate Democrats have said they will not bring a budget to the floor this year, though Republicans in the chamber have talked about trying to at least force a vote on Mr. Obama's plan there as well.

 

Last year, when they forced a vote on his 2012 budget, it was defeated 97-0.

=======================

 

By the way, in parliamentary procedure terms [the House and Senate rules are more byzantine than Robert's Rules of Order by a lot] someone must vote in the majority to move for reconsideration later. Therefore, if you planned to amend or revive the bill later, you must vote against it now.

Almost... there are a few dozen "present" votes in there.

The argument that the Republicans do not want to vote for any bill is specious. The Republicans will vote for their own bill as they have every year since the Obamination became president.

 

The argument that voting at all on the Obamination budget was a Republican plot to embarrass is also specious. The Dems control the Senate and Harry Reid had them vote on the Obamination budget last yeasr when it was defeated 97 to nothing.

 

The Dems fear the Obamination's coattails because they are leading to a massive defeat this Fall.:):):)

 

I can see 11/12 from my house.

No - in fact, many conservatives and moderates were up in arms when they heard the white house say they were closing shop for the season
