Obama budget goes 0-414 in House

So let’s see, the two votes I’ve seen on the two Obama budgets that at least one of the houses of Congress has voted on in the past two year, neither has garnered a single vote from any legislator regardless of party.

Yesterday the House voted unanimously against President Obama’s current budget.  Last year the Senate went 0 for and 97 against his previous budget.

The House Democrats claim to have their own budget which closely mirrors the Obama budget deficits but differs in the details.

Oh good.

Meanwhile:

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.

Thank you Harry Reid for your strong fiscal leadership.  What is it?  Well over 1,000 days and Senate Democrats have yet to produce a budget.

My guess is it’s Bush’s fault.
