  • VIDEO: 1,000 Days Without a Senate Budget

    The President’s State of the Union address tonight will no doubt grab most of the day’s headlines as the president lays out his goals for the coming year. But today is an important one for another reason — it marks the 1,000th day since the United States Senate has passed a budget. While the House has put forth (and passed) its own budget, the Senate has failed to do the same for more than two years. To help illustrate how extraordinary this failure has been, our new video highlights a few impressive feats in history that have been accomplished in less time.

    Please share our video with friends and family. And if you have a blog, consider posting our “Senate Budget Widget” on your site. Click here to learn how.

      I appreciate the point and succinctness of this video. I have a suggestion to make and I hope will get some attention from the right people. If you play this video to the end you will notice that six other video selections appear in the video screen Also notice that these are unrelated videos. I wish that some thought would be given to the likely "thought trees" that develop in the minds of viewers who watch the original video, and that the following video selections would be equal in quality and succinctness, but be related. For example, a short video on how this can happen? A budget is required isn't it? How is it being avoided? Has this ever happened before? Are there any individuals that are particularly responsible, either for proposing a budget, or for tactically and intentionally avoiding presenting one. Just a thought.

    2. Thanks , I have recently been looking for information approximately this topic for a long time and yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. However, what about the conclusion? Are you sure in regards to the source?|What i don’t realize is if truth be told how you are not really a lot more smartly-liked than you might be now. You are so intelligent.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
