“I’m confident the Senate will take up a budget,” said DNC Spokeswoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz “>back on April 4th in response to questions about why Democrats haven’t passed a budget in nearly three years. The problem? Well, the Senate isn’t taking up a budget this year.
So now Rep. Wasserman-Schultz’s spin has evolved. You see, the lack of a budget is the GOP’s fault because they blocked Obama’s budget in the House:
There’s a problem with this talking point too, though. You see, when Obama’s budget was voted on in the House, it went down under a unanimous vote of 414 – 0 with not a single Democrat. And not only did no Democrats vote for it, lots of them voted against it including Rep. Wasserman-Schultz herself.
How can Republicans be responsible for blocking Obama’s budget when it went down to an overwhelming and bi-partisan vote?
