Senate Dems to Pass First Budget in Four Years
The Hill posted a jaw-dropping lead to describe just how broken is the federal budget process:
Senate Democrats on Wednesday said they will move a budget resolution through the Budget Committee and onto the Senate floor for the first time in four years.
Despite protests to the contrary, the move is in response to a House-approved measure to move the nation’s debt ceiling back from late February to early May.
It’s hard to applaud a group of adults for finally getting the regular budget process going in the Senate. Still, it’s a sign of progress that a budget may actually be produced in accordance with federal law.
