Reid shuts down budget

Federal law requires the Congress to adopt a budget every year, but for the last few years, the Democrats have ignored the law. They don’t want a budget because it would require them to go on record with their spending priorities.

Perhaps because of an attack of conscience, the Senate Budget Committee chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND) decided that the Senate would fulfill its statutory duty this year. Starting this week, the Senate Budget Committee would begin considering a budget.

But now Harry Reid has scuttled the process. The Senate will not take up a budget until after the election, if at all.
