And on the 1,240th day since Senate Democrats adopted a budget, Republican leaders in the Senate on Thursday assailed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats for their failures, promising to pass a budget if voters put them in the majority after November.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member on the Budget Committee, said “this nation has never faced a more difficult financial challenge” than it current “deep systemic demographic problems.”
“They need to be addressed yet today marks the 1,240th day since the Democratic Leadership in the Senate adopted a budget,” Sessions said. “For three years in a time of financial crises, the Senate’s Democratic majority has failed to comply with the United States code that requires us to bring up a budget and bring it to the floor of the United States Senate.”
Sessions said the Democrats’ failure was “a colossal failure of leadership” and “a failure of fundamental responsibility.” He declared that such a failure makes Democrats “unable to be able to ask to be returned to leadership.”
...Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) later took to the Senate floor and accused the Republican Senators of “hubris.”
