No budget vote in the Senate likely today

...Apparently the Reps don't have the votes, so they pulled the COW agenda with the two tax package bills.

A "pledge, prayer, and procrastinate" floor session about to start...

It should be painfully obvious now that the straight-GOP vote budget isn't. going. to. happen.

So maybe it might be time to sit down and negotiate with Democrats.

Really? Ya think things have gotten that far yet?

Then again, they've solved that problem:

If you look at the dateline for the AZ Central article about them missing the deadline on the budget, it is December 31, 1969 (!)

They've apparently resolved that problem by inventing a time machine, and now they have nearly four decades longer to meet this deadline. Even money whether this group of clowns can get a budget done in less than forty years.
