Do Nothing Senate Democrats - ‘Led’ By Harry Reid - Major Fail

Do Nothing Senate Democrats - ‘Led’ By Harry Reid - Major Fail

Over 20 House Passed, Jobs Creating Bills Will Never Be Considered In Reid’s Senate

By Dell Hill

Recently we heard Debbie Whatshername Schultz, head of the Democrat National Committee, bloviating about the “do nothing Republicans in congress” as being the primary reason why President Barack H. Obama hasn’t been able to lead the country out of it’s financial woes.  It took all of about four minutes for Doug Ross to come up with the actual reasons.

Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-Nv)
100% Responsible For ‘Do Nothing’ Congress

Here they are, by the numbers:

• 0: Number of Senate votes taken on the massive Democrat spending package crafted last year in place of an actual budget.

You saw no votes because there was never any real budget proposed, and the reason it wasn’t proposed is the bottom line.  Obama, Senate Boss, Harry Reid and House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi simply did NOT want you to see just exactly how many trillion dollars in spending they proposed.  Had you seen that number, the roof would have come off the Capitol dome.

• 0: Number of votes the President’s FY 2012 budget received in the Senate.

• 0: Senate Budget Committee budget mark-ups scheduled last year.

• 3: Number of years the deficit has topped $1 Trillion.

• 3: Number of years total government spending has exceeded $3 Trillion.

• 34: number of months unemployment has been above 8 percent, the jobless rate the “stimulus” was supposed to prevent.

• 1.4 million: number of jobs killed by President Obama

The Obama administration highly touts it’s “jobs saved or created” numbers, but almost always fails to mention the jobs destroyed and lost forever by overbearing federal regulations, not to mention presidential orders, which have not only stifled economic growth, they’ve killed it dead.

• $16.4 Trillion: amount of debt held by the nation after three years of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid spending binge.

We’ve also been treated to two consecutive “Recovery Summers”, neither of which showed any indication of recovery.  Maybe the summer of 2012 will be different.  NOT.

As Doug writes; “When President Obama blames a "do nothing" Congress, perhaps he should lean over and wink at Harry Reid, who has intentionally avoided passage of a budget for three consecutive years, an act of fiscal irresponsibility without parallel in modern American history.”

Dell’s Bottom Line:

With the adjournment of the current congressional session, over twenty House passed pieces of legislation - most centered around job creation for desperate American families - will die right where they sit - on Harry Reid’s desk.

Never, ever let anyone tell you that the Republicans in congress refused to do the job they were elected to do.  House Republicans acted boldly, as did Senate Republicans.  It was Harry Reid and the Democrat controlled United States Senate that failed their own President.  Make absolutely no mistake about it.

PS:  The President is scheduled to give his State of the Union Address on January 24th - exactly 1,000 days since the passage of the last Constitutionally mandated  federal budget.  During two of those three congressional sessions, Democrats held total control of the White House, House of Representatives and United States Senate.  They could have easily passed any budget the President presented.  But, they didn’t, and we know why.
