RSC Chairman Jordan: 888 days, and Senate Democrats still have no budget!

The re-election campaign of the Blame-Everyone-Else-in-Chief, Barack Obama  --  who has blamed just about everyone else for the Obama Recession (or very close to a recession) which our nation is experiencing including two and a half years of blaming President George W. Bush  --  is now singling out the Majority Leader in the United States House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, R-VA for blame.

Obama said in a speech at a community college:  "I'd like Mr Cantor to come down here to Dallas and explain what exactly in this jobs bill does he not believe in."

Congressman Cantor and his fellow Republicans in the House are not passing Obama's "jobs" bill  --  actually a tax increase bill  --  and so Obama blames them for his bad economy.  Actually, the Senate Republican Leader, Mitch McConnell, KY, is perfectly happy to have the Democrat-controlled Senate vote on Obama's "jobs" bill, but Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, is deathly afraid of having a vote since he knows a sizable number of Democrats won't vote for Obama's "jobs" bill.  Of course, not one Republican Senator would vote for it either. 

Yesterday's "The Washington Times," quoted Majority Leader Cantor's response to Obama's attacks on him and the Republican-controlled House of Representatives:  "House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, said Mr. Obamais 'in over his head as to what to do about this economy.'  'I don’t think he’s ever run a business. I don’t think he’s ever really created a job,' Mr. Cantor said in an online interview with the Wall Street Journal. He added that their face-to-face negotiations gave him the sense that Mr. Obama is 'not someone who has a grounding in what business is about in this country.'" 

Obama would do well do concentrate on getting Senate Majority Leader Reid to pass a budget for the federal government, something the Democrats have not done for 888 days now.  The Chairman of the 180-member conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC) in the House of Representatives, Jim Jordan, OH, said yesterday, "Senate Democrats have now gone 888 days without producing any budget at all. The failure of politicians to limit the size and appetite of the federal government is a direct cause of our current debt problems."

The rest of RSC Chairman Jordan's press release is directly below:

Another Year, Another Trillion in Debt

Over the last 12 months, the federal government spent about $1.3 trillion that it didn’t have. That makes three straight years with trillion-dollar deficits – the three largest deficits in history. And even as federal spending accounted for almost a quarter of GDP,  our economy continues to struggle.

Republicans have worked all year long to cut spending and get back on track to a balanced budget. The RSC budget proposal, for instance, would balance the books in nine years. Unfortunately, liberals continue to stand in the way of significant cuts to wasteful spending.

Senate Democrats have now gone 888 days without producing any budget at all. The failure of politicians to limit the size and appetite of the federal government is a direct cause of our current debt problems. To fix the problem permanently, it’s clear we need a Balanced Budget Amendment that forces Washington to kick its spending addiction. Families and businesses have to live within their means, why shouldn’t Washington?
