they didn't in 09 10 or 11... no budget was passed for 12

the Senate is still in the hands of the Dems and Obama has a veto stamp... the House Republicans don't control spending

You really need to quit with the "intellectually dishonest" because I don't think it means what you think it means.

You're welcome to blame the mess on the GOP but to do so would actually conform to your snipe swipe.
