<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Congress is poised to miss its April 15 deadline for finishing next year’s budget without even considering a draft in either chamber.

Unlike citizens’ tax-filing deadline, Congress’s mid-April benchmark is nonbinding. And members seem to be in no rush to get the process going.

Indeed, some Democratic insiders suspect that leaders will skip the budget process altogether this year — a way to avoid the political unpleasantness of voting on spending, deficits and taxes in an election year — or simply go through a few of the motions, without any real effort to complete the work.</div></div>

&gt;&gt;&gt;SO MUCH FOR THAT LASER LIKE FOCUS&lt;&lt;&lt; (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0410/35647.html)

Possibly because they know they don't have a prayer of coming up with a workable budget that would hold the line on spending and taxing.

They whipped out the mega-credit card to get the toys they wanted, but they don't know how to handle the bill!

I apologize to the forum.

Apparently our esteemed leftist cabal has deemed the reporting of congress refusing to do it's duty to be "FRIVOLOUS."
