When will the US Senate submit,debate and pass a 2012 budget?
The Senate under the leadership of Senator Reid (2007- present) has not presented a 2012 budget. President Obama submitted his 2012 budget in Feb 2011, the Senate voted 97-0 to reject his budget. The Republican House passed a 2012 budget, sent it to the Senate for approval. Senator Rreid did not allow a debate amendment or a vote on the House budget. Looks like 2/3's of our government needs to show up for work.
When pigs fly? When hell freezes over?
