So Ryan comes out with a tough budget, year again. Another House version is even tougher.

The Senate goes into the wee hours of the morning and into daybreak.....then they finally pass a rather embarrassing resolution that solves nothing. They add some more taxes in there, some non-binding resolutions, yet in the end it ends up laughable.

The medical device tax in the ACA? Seems a lot of folks want this tax gone. It also seems Obama will have to get the Keystone Pipeline done. Meanwhile, the ACA deficit projection will climb, and the healthcare support for veterans of the wars has not even been factored into the budget forecasts.

I'm not even sure we could afford the vouchers for Medicare in Ryan's plan.
