You're going to hear plenty about the Republican Paul Ryan budget plan this campaign season, but you won't hear much about a Democrat budget. Why? They haven't voted on one in the Dem-controlled US Senate in 1,092 days.
In an interview last night with Fox News's Bret Baier that is making the rounds on the internet, Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz gives a bumbling and awkward defense of why Democrats haven't voted on a budget, explaining Americans don't care about that because it's "process."
On April 29, it will mark three years that Democrats in the US Senate have not voted on a budget.
Check it out here:
Baier points out that Wasserman-Schultz said on Fox News a few weeks ago that she expected Democrats in the Senate to take up a budget. But Senate Budget Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND) said last week:
“This is the wrong time to vote in committee; this is the wrong time to vote on the floor. I don’t think we will be prepared to vote before the election.”
With Democrats' majority in the US Senate threatened this year, they are afraid of taking any votes than could harm their vulnerable incumbents.
Cowardice is no way to win an election.
