No FY2015 Senate Budget
Must be an election year.
It’s an election year, which must mean that Senate Democrats won’t release a budget. To be fair, though, the upper chamber has issued a budget only once – in 2013 – since 2009, so this is no different. Sen. Patty Murray explained, “While this budget year is settled and it wouldn’t be productive to re-litigate it so soon after our two-year deal, I plan to work with my colleagues on the Budget Committee to lay out our long-term vision for creating jobs, boosting the economy, and tackling our deficits fairly and responsibly.” Forget fiscal responsibility – leaving the budget undone has the convenient effect of shielding red-state Democrats from having to defend the Obama-Reid agenda with its steep price tag.
