Democratic legislators have a history of not showing up as a means of trying to get their way. We remember Wisconsin in 2011 and Texas a few years ago - when Democrats fled the state to manipulate quorum rules to avoid voting on legislation they did not like. They do not want to be on record approving the president's budget - nor do they want to vote against it. So, they simply avoid voting. One of those is my Senator - Bill Nelson of Florida. The slim hope he had of getting my vote just went up in smoke.
