<<<Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.>>>

I am sorry, but no, he did not think this through. The House has passed over 16 budgets (Republican controlled), Harry Reid's Senate (Democrat controlled), has not allowed a vote on a SINGLE one of them. Much less a bill getting to the president that he can veto.

Equivocation is just another excuse for the Democrats to blame the other side. Not our fault, when in fact, the Democrats have not allowed a budget into the Senate in 3 years.

Sorry, I am just not gonna put up with this sort of simple thinking, when it is so imperative that we fix this problem now.

Don't like the Republican budget from the House, fine, let it be voted on, and vote it down, and then propose one of your own. Never been allowed to happen in the Senate because it just might pass.

On the other hand, the budgets proposed by Obama have been uanimously rejected.

So lets get real. The Democrats like the status quo, because the status quo uses baseline budgeting, which insures ever growing government spending as long as NOTHING is done. A vote on it would decrease government spending.
