Republicans to Reid: Pass a Budget if You Want a Debt Ceiling Increase

In other words the democratic senate will not enforce the law, so Harry Reid is free to thumb his nose at it. Time for the people to demand a budget, even a tax strike to not pay unless a budget is passed. Where is the spirit of resistance that made this country?

Round two of another fiscal crisis is already underway as debate over raising the nation's borrowing limit, better known as the debt ceiling, heats up. Majority leader Harry Reid has blatantly ignored the law by failing to introduce a budget for more than 1300 days. House Republicans on the other hand have fullfilled their duty to the law by introducing and passing a budget every year since Obama has been in office.  As Byron York points out, Reid's actions could give Republicans some leverage when it comes to satisfy Presindent Obama's request to increased borrowing (and spending) ability.
