Obama budget defeated 97-0, democrat controlled Senate hasn't passed a budget in 760 days

Obama trashed precious taxpayer time and expense on a 2400 page 'budget' so bad no democrats voted for it.

5/30/11, "Washington is Broken, and Needs Leadership. Where is President Obama?" Senator Ron Johnson, RedState.com

"For over 31 years, I’ve been building a manufacturing business in Oshkosh, Wisconsin with hundreds of good, hardworking, taxpaying Americans. During that entire time, I have watched government steadily grow, increasing its control over our lives, heaping trillions of dollars of regulations on our businesses, fostering a culture of entitlement and dependency, mortgaging the future of our children and grandchildren, and driving America toward national bankruptcy.

I’ve been here in Washington for 5 months now, and I am more convinced than ever that our political and budget process is horribly broken. The Democrat controlled Senate has not passed a budget in over 760 days. Last week, President Obama’s FY 2012 Budget was defeated in the Senate by a vote of 0-97. Let me repeat that, ZERO to 97. The President’s budget that was unveiled as THE solution to our long-term fiscal problems did not receive a single vote in the United States Senate.

This is a stunning indictment of the President’s lack of leadership and seriousness. I don’t know how many thousands of man-hours that over four inch thick, 2400-page budget document took to create, but it was a total waste of time and resources. That is a very sad fact. Instead of acknowledging this failure, the Administration and members of the President’s party have been viciously demagoguing the only other budget plans offered, and engaging in a concerted effort to scare the American public and financial markets over the debt ceiling limit."...



"You cannot expect leadership from someone intent on destroying America

"Sorry, but Obama is a destroyer not a leader.

The Republicans in the Senate need to get a grip and start fighting Obama tooth & nail - you cannot work with this Marxist. The RINOS in the Senate are more on the side of socialism and that is the problem.

You must hold and block until after the Nov. 2012 elections.
If not and Obama gets re-elected then it won’t matter how many elections the Republicans win after that.

Sorry for the blunt talk but what is needed right now is a Republican Senate with spine & guts. I don’t know how you get to Brown, Snowe, Collins, Murkowski and a few more of the RINOS but they need to understand the fate of the republic is in the balance and it is much more important than their next election.

The point cannot be made often enough: Modern liberalism, as embodied in the Obama presidency, is the defender of the status quo.
