    Stabenow: Budgets are so, like restrictive and stuff.

    April 29, 2009 was the last time the fickle Debbie Stabenow took part in her constitutional duty to pass a budget. Since then, the Democrat led Senate has used continuing resolutions, and omnibus spending bills to spend money we borrow from China.

    But if you ask Debbie why she hasn't demanded a budget, she'll tell you that the magical modern Democrat Senate has passed a bigger, better, more than sufficient super budget called the Budget Control Act in 2011.

    But the Budget Control Act was the convoluted answer to the difficulty of passing the infamous debt ceiling deal, where Americans were taken on a dark, hidden path by Senate Democrats explicitly to avoid passing a budget.

    Making up a new language and boasting about a bipartisan approach does not a budget make, but Stabenow focuses on the BCA as a budget that even the Senate Parliamentarian can't affirm.  In fact, what the BCA did was set up a commission to act and if it didn't, the deal was to cut our military and domestic spending automatically.  That is not a budget, it's a fiasco in lieu of a budget.  It is not x amount of dollars to be spent in a certain manner, it is instead an ultimatum, a deal we can't refuse that has no responsibility.  It's tantamount to giving your college kid $500 for a month's expenses, with no agreement on what your money is to be spent on.  The kid can go buy a sound system, and mooch food off his friends, borrow money and end up pre-spending $300 of the following month's money.  It's not responsible, and Stabenow insists it is.

    Stabenow isn't interested in setting limits and making tough decisions.  Instead, she reacted to the worst recession since the Great Depression with new ways to spend money we do not have, and is sending the bill to the people with a snarky, "Hey, it's the best we can do, like it or lump it, budgets are restrictive and stuff."

    We must remove this unaccountable, head-in-the-clouds menace, and make it a priority, while she decides her priorities include evading responsible decisions.

    She's lying, plain and simple, about her great accomplishment of passing a budget.

    I'm hearing you lound and clear on Debbie's... (none / 0) (#1)

    ...piss-poor excuse of a record, but really, what choice is there?

    She supported the NDAA of 2012 to effectively suspend Posse Comitatus, allow our government to snatch & grab US citizens and hold us indefinitely.

    She gave us "Cash-for Clunkers" to prop-up Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and Hyundai. I guess that Chrysler, GM & Ford just weren't high on her list? The destruction of perfectly good vehicles for the sake of the environment, while people are wanting for reliable transportation meant nothing to her.

    She supported the "fairness doctrine". Not sure if she still does since that brouhaha over her husband's embarrassing "street walker" arrest and subsequent slap-on-the-wrist.

    Then there are perennial candidates Scotty Boman (now a Libertarian...dumping ground for failed Republican Candidates) and Harley Mikkelson still on the Green Ticket.

    Oh yeah, and then we've got Pete.

    I'm not a huge fan of "holding my nose while I vote", but seriously, I'm not seeing any real difference between this bunch!
