Guess What? No Democrat Budget this Week
As we reported earlier in the week, Kent Conrad (D-ND), Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, claimed to have a Democrat budget ready for markup. Well surprise, surprise, it won’t be revealed this week after all.
It seems they really will wait until after a debt limit deal is reached, because if they released their plan now and finally revealed to America what their vision of our future is (hint: more spending, higher taxes) then the Republicans would have a huge chip to bargain with in the remaining negotiations.
We’ll see how many more months it takes to actually reveal this budget.
