So Bravo, the GOP passed a budget for the first time since during Chimpy’s Reign of Error, The Hill breathlessly tells us:
Congressional Republicans scored a major legislative victory on Tuesday as the Senate adopted the first bicameral GOP budget agreement in a decade.
The 51-48 vote capped weeks of work by Republican leaders in the House and Senate, who shepherded the blueprint through a messy debate over defense spending that at times threatened to split their conferences.
The blueprint passed the House last week, and will not require a signature from President Obama.
And do you know why it does not need a signature from The Kenyan Usurper? Because it is not legislation (yet). Take it away, Mr. Kilgore:
“But now comes the part that’s real: actually implementing the resolution via appropriations bills and maybe a reconciliation bill. The former are subject to filibusters while the latter are not, but both require a presidential signature.”
And I think we can all sit back and watch what happens next as the various Wingnuts from The Island of Broken Toys take to this thing with an axe and picks as each one fights for their own personal, grandstanding agenda. Expect yet another government shutdown and at least one more filibuster from the senators in the 2016 Goat Rodeo as they work to prove that they are more pure than the waterhead to each of their lefts.
