Today marks the 800th day since the Senate Democrats passed a budget. For more than two years, democrats have ignored their legal obligation to pass a budget, while we've seen federal spending spiral out of control. Considering democrats have controlled the White House and the Senate for more than two years, with total democrat control between 2008 and 2010 in the House, Senate and White House, the failure lies with President Obama and democrat congressional leadership.

 


 

With today's economic news of increased unemployment, the economy hasn't been turned around, but democrats do own the economy.

Lack of a budget is directly tied to the debt crisis, out of control government spending, stagnant economic growth and debilitating unemployment in America.

Mark Meckler of the Tea Party Patriots sums up the situation perfectly:

“This week marks the 800 Days of Infamy—800 days without passing a budget,” said Mark Meckler, National Coordinator of Tea Party Patriots.  “This Senate, controlled by Democrats, will go down as one of the most irresponsible, do-nothing Senates in the history of the institution.  May history judge them as harshly as they deserve, and may the electorate throw many of them out on their collective hind ends in 2012.”
