THE DEMOCRAT MAJORITY GOES OUT LIKE A LAMB:

Dems won’t pass budget in 2010 (Jared Allen, 06/22/10, The Hill)

The House has never failed to pass an annual budget resolution since the current budget rules were put into place in 1974. [...]

The nation’s debt and budget deficits — and what to do about them — are the theme of Hoyer’s speech.

It’s also the issue that’s destroying what’s left of the Democrats’ jobs agenda as centrist Democrats have balked at the price tag of such measures.

For weeks, Democratic leaders have tried to strike a deal on the budget, which is a non-binding resolution, but to no avail.

The talks triggered splits in the Democratic Caucus, alienating conservative Democrats from their liberal colleagues.
