    So they want to have a budget fight every three months. Each one of these budget fights seems to consume about a month and a half to two months of actual "fighting" time.
    That takes up approximately 8 months of the year. Then add up the myriad vacation and "constituent service" time and you've got the whole year right there.
    So they want to actually write the schedule so that they don't have time to accomplish a damn thing.

    Everybody got to elevate from the norm....

      An excellent way to tie up government all year long, having a new "budget/debt" crisis every three months.

      Also multiple opportunities to throw in cuts to SS and Medicare benefits.

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
