4 Years no budget from Senate ...

You’re really gonna call the House Budget anything other than a sham.It cuts veterans programs by 24% (from a guy who’s never served his country, or even been in a combat zone) cuts pell grants and overall education funding by 30%
meanwhile it increases military spending by 500 billion dollars
And Medicare? yeah, you get $6000 a year to go find your own private healthcare insurance, except there hasn’t been private insurance for people over 65 for the last 50 years (i’m not talking about private medicare add-on insurance)

The whole point of a house bill is to negotiate something that will pass senate. negotiate ? Remember that word?
Congress doesn't use much anymore
