    Democrat-led Senate votes down 4 GOP budgets for ‘13

    The Senate on Wednesday rejected every single budget being offered this year, leaving the chamber - and therefore the federal government - without a plan to address Medicare, Social Security and the other major entitlement programs that are driving deficits and debt.

    In repeated votes, Democrats who control the chamber defeated four Republican proposals, including a plan that passed the House in March. The entire Senate also unanimously rejected President Obama’s 2013 budget, voting 99-0 against it, following a 414-0 vote against it in the House earlier this year

    This will continue to hurt Obama's re-election bid.

    But don't you know?

    It's the Republicans that are obstructionist. :rolleyes:

    Just ask Obama and his little bucket brigade here on the board. :laugh:

    BTW - we know who they are. :smilewinkgrin:

    I saw that some Democrats are doing their best to spin this vote against Obama's budget proposal. You can't blame them. But this can't look good for Obama. In the past some have called the President's proposals unserious, more for campaign posturing. This vote gives that idea a stamp of approval.
