Remember you could take all of the "riches" wealth, all, and it still will not begin to cover the debt and spending, thats how bad this is! Politicians refuse the live within their means, because they want POWER and CONTROL, not a sensible, responsible, well adjusted society!
Two amazing upsets happened last night: a small school called Florida Gulf Coast University upset perennial powerhouse Georgetown in the first round of the NCAA tournament, and Harry Reid's Senate passed a budget!

The Senate passing a budget, of course, is by far the more miraculous occurrence, and certainly a rarer one. A 15-seed upsetting a 2-seed in the NCAA tournament is nearly a yearly occurrence: Lehigh upset Duke just last year, for example. Harry Reid's Senate, despite being legislatively binding, has refused to even offer up a budget since 2009.

This Senate budget passed 50-49, with four Democrats...
