Today also marks three years to the day, or April 29, 2009, since Dems last passed a budget. They simply refuse to do their jobs.—

Today marks the third anniversary of the last time the Democrat-controlled Senate passed a budget. Twitter noted the date with a lot less humor and celebration than you might expect. A national debt of more than $15 trillion focuses the mind and chases the hokes away, it seems.
Ah, but those Senators who refused to take their jobs seriously have gotten paid haven’t they? Oh, yes. They surely have.
Normally, such a momentous date would merit a hashtag, but this request went largely unfulfilled.
Q: what is the hashtag du jour on 3 years w/o a budget?—

Apparently, three years of fiscal neglect is not all that funny to the millions of folks who use Twitter every day.
