So,...do we give them a cookie now for actually doing their jobs or something? Here is the Democrat propaganda from The Hill:
The Senate early Saturday passed its first budget in four years by a vote of 50 to 49.
The close vote was a big victory for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.),...
How is this a victory for the Democrats? That they had just enough morons to vote to pass it? Four Senate Democrats up for re-election in 2014 and from states that went for Romney in 2012 (including Mark Pryor from my state) voted against this mess, joining all of the Republicans.
The Murray budget...does not constitute a net spending cut.
Did Senate Democrats have to approve the quoted sentence before it went public? Because the correct sentence would read "The Murray budget constitutes a spending increase." But that would make the Democrats really look bad, wouldn't it?
Democrats argue that America cares first and foremost about economic growth, and their approach eschews austerity that could cost millions of jobs.
Another Democrat-approved statement that is quite the Krugman-esque lie. Is it stopping the Obama regime from spending billions on frivolous entertainment spending? No. Is it stopping the Obama DoJ from spending billions on its frivolous lawsuits in the courts? No. Is it stopping Obamacare? No. Is it stopping Obama from spending billions in frivolous foreign policy spending? No, and Obama is promising to spend even more money. Is it stopping the Obama regime from throwing billions of dollars in tax money down the toilet to failed "green" energy companies? No. Is it resetting the budget baseline to what it was before Porkulus? No. Where is the actual austerity? Cutting employees who work on programs that are the equivalent of paying people to first dig holes and then filling them in (e.g., Head Start, everything related to Porkulus) is not austerity; it's fiscal responsibility.
