    No one who refuses to do the job they've been hired to do should be paid, in fact if these fools worked in the private sector their useless asses would have been fired and thrown out in the street years ago.

    In fact I think their pay and benefits should be slashed by half on a permanent basis and that two terms is all they can have.....and no lifetime benefits, either.

    They're not doing what we "hired" them to do. Imagine you being a company's financial officer and failing to come up with a budget. What would happen to you? Bastards.

    We should be able to go a step farther. If they do not pass a reasonably balanced budget within a reasonable time they cannot run for re election. If a budget is not passed then they might also loose their exit benefits. They failed to do their job... they loose their key to ripping us off.

    Hit the wrong ans I do agree we need to hold them accountable.
    This is for all you libs on this one The House has put out a budget for the last two years you may not agree with what they put forth but they did their job the Senate has not Reed tabled the house’s budget with out a vote now then what normally happens is both the house and senate put forth the budget proposals and it goes to a joint committee and a budget comes out that both parties can agree on. I SAID THIS IS NORMAL BUT there is nothing normal with Reed and that one in the oval office the sooner they leave the better off the country will be.

    Absolutely.. but you HAVE to understand WHY they're NOT passing a Budget to get the REAL picture.... They'd have to put in print exactly what they're spending on everything and YOU know THEIR motto..

    " We have to PASS these things before anybody gets a chance to know what's in it.."

    You NOTIICE that things continue to go on even without a budget don't you??

    With Harry Reid Blocking everything in the Congress they can't PASS anything...

    But Obama can STILL get any and everything he wants with an EXECUTIVE Order..

    What needs to happen here is the Senate Democrats need to privately confront HR and tell him to resign his post or the DNC needs to confront him and tell him to step down. I am sure by now that the elite in the Democratic Party realize that they are losing voter support with H.R.'s Senate leadership . The DNC must see that they are going to lose Senate seats because of H.R. I would not be surprised that the DNC does not soon say they have no confidence in his leadership.

    All budgets to date have been passed. The FY2013 Budget is not due until October 1.

    I know this confuses you Cons to no end. A formal budget could not be passed for FY2012 because of The Budget Control Act of 2011, but of course, I'm sure you have no idea what that even is.

    The actual appropriations for Fiscal Year 2012 were enacted as three appropriations bills in November and December 2011, which is in accordance with the United States budget process and law. They are:

    Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012 (PL112-55)
    Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (PL112-74)
    Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2012 (PL112-77)

    These 3 Appropriation Bills passed satisfy Federal Law in place of a formal budget.

    I realize these words are much too long and complicated for the Conservatives on here to understand, so unless they actually see the word "buhh-jit" on something they're going to claim one hasn't been passed.

    February 7, President Obama was to send to Congress his budget proposals for fiscal year 2013, which begins October 1, 2012. Fiscal year begins in october, not the budget proposal.

    The President's Budget was submitted February 13th so I have no idea what you're babbling about and apparently neither do you.
