The Obama-Reid-Pelosi Democrats

The Senate has become a dead-end for the dozen appropriations bills which Congress must pass by the end of September to keep the government running.

The Democrat-controlled Senate has not produced a budget for more than two years. Not one appropriation bill passed and sent to the House this year.

The House GOP is doing their job, as this report from The Hill notes:

This year, the House has passed six of 12 bills and moved nine through the Appropriations Committee. The Senate has passed one bill through committee, for military construction and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Every Republican presidential candidate should pound on the Obama-Reid-Pelosi dysfunction in the Congress. There is no excuse for the Senate’s refusal to get its basic work done.

The obvious explanation is that the president and the key Democrats in Congress want another CR showdown and hopefully a government shutdown which will again divert attention from the miserable economy that their policies have brought about.

The Hill, the Post and the Examiner ought to keeping a focus on the paralysis in the Senate and distinguishing it from the House, where John Boehner and Eric Cantor have kept the business of the Congress moving.
