The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that House Democrats, with their newfound majority, are likely going to punt on actually putting together a budget.
Too many fringe-dwellers (“divisions”) within their own party.

They just took power two months ago, and they’re so divided they can’t even write a budget.

That news dropped the same day that nearly all Senate Democrats voted “present” on the Green New Deal, which is said to be the savior of life as we know it.
As House minority leader Kevin McCarthy points out, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other ranking House Democrats have said many times that a budget equals values.
Do-Nothing Democrats 👇

So they have no values?
Sounds about right.
So let me get this straight: Dems took back the majority in the House just so they could avoid actually governing?
There are no serious policy proposals on the other side. Just look at yesterday’s vote on the Green New Deal. https://t.co/e8hx9hTswy

This is not surprising. It is, nonetheless, embarrassing for Washington Democrats. https://t.co/1yXSRAeqWq

They fight tooth and nail against anything Trump proposes, but they can’t even write their own budget.
If the @HouseDemocrats want to punt, the @HouseGOP will gladly go back on offense. No way to unite them except in opposition to @GOP & @realDonaldTrump. What are they actually FOR? No Budget = No Agenda. Gridlock or greatness? https://t.co/jXjGxvZW9w

Talk about a party in complete chaos.
