The do-nothing Senate

The House of Representatives (242 Republicans, 192 Democrats) has passed a budget every year and sent it to the Senate. The Senate (53 Democrats, 47 Republicans) has refused to pass a budget for 1,057 days and counting. Passing a budget in the Senate requires 51 votes.  Remind me again: which one is the do-nothing party?

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) sure is a useful tool.

Obama and Reid

But hey, to hear our own Sherrod Brown (D-OH) tell it, passing a budget isn’t all that meaningful.
