DNC Chairwoman: I’m confident the Senate will take up a budget

posted at 1:45 pm on April 4, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Did Debbie Wasserman Schultz mean to say what she said in this interview?

In three different ways, she says that we’ll see a Senate budget. Harry Reid has said otherwise. According to Reid, the Budget Control Act — the lackluster deal that concluded the debt ceiling drama of last summer — is all the budget the Senate needs.

But as I’ve written repeatedly, the BCA is not a budget. The spending caps it instituted apply only to discretionary spending — but mandatory spending constitutes about 60 percent of all federal spending. Mandatory programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security drive our deficits and debt. Without the imposition of budget discipline, these programs grow on autopilot.

By never submitting a budget, enacting a few discretionary spending caps as a part of the Budget Control Act and punting to the Super Committee that also punted on entitlement reform, Democrats have managed to avoid any difficult discussion of how to ensure the solvency of our entitlement programs. With no plan of their own on the table, they’re free to shoot down anything Republicans propose.

And, of course, that’s exactly what they’ve done: They’ve shot down the Ryan plan again and again and again. DWS tried to stick to her talking points in this interview with Greta, but Greta didn’t let up. Eventually, DWS says lamely that she’s sure the Senate will take up a budget. (Incidentally, the Senate really might, but it won’t be because that’s what Reid wants or because Democrats have decided to actually forward a plan.) Her statement suggests that she knows what Harry Reid pretends not to know: The BCA is not a budget and, until Democrats put forward their own “blueprint for the structure of the nation’s fiscal house,” the reconciliation process can’t even begin let alone conclude.

At this point, Democrats have absolutely nothing to fear from the Ryan plan. It’s nowhere near becoming law. Their constant demagoguery of it is purely political. If they cared to produce an alternative and sell the American people on that, they could — and, given that they control the Senate and the White House, they’d have a better chance of actually passing their vision than Ryan and the Republicans have of passing theirs at this point.

All the angry rhetoric is designed to distract from the truth that Democrats’ plan amounts to this: Leave entitlements alone and allow them to implode at the appointed dates.

Yeah, sure she is. What she didn’t tell you, though, is that she is confident THE REPUBLICAN SENATE IN 2013 will take up a budget.

And I am certain that when the Senate passes a budget pigs will start to fly!!!

logicman_1998 on April 4, 2012 at 1:52 PM

She’s just another liar … like all democrats. You only need 51 votes to pass a budget, and the democrats have 53. Yet they continue to blame Republicans when they could easily pass a budget today.

This is a prime example of how corrupt and evil democrats are.

If they cared to produce an alternative and sell the American people on that, they could — and, given that they control the Senate and the White House, they’d have a better chance of actually passing their vision than Ryan and the Republicans have of passing theirs at this point.

But that would entail going on record to vote. It’s so much easier to demagog Ryan’s budget when you don’t ever have to commit to an alternative.

Why didn’t Greta remind Debbie that the Medicare plan is a bipartisan proposal. Instead of calling it the “Ryan-Romney” plan, we should be calling it the “Ryan-Wyden” plan. The American public needs to realize that Ryan did cross the aisle and included valuable insight from Wyden. It will show how the President demands bipartisanship, only if it means enacting his plans only.

djaymick on April 4, 2012 at 2:05 PM

I completely disagree. Greta failed to nail DWS on the fact that the Senate hasn’t passed a budget in 3 years – more than 1,070 days – what makes you think Harry Reid will pass one now?

And how about the fact that Greta failed to note that the Obama budget was rejected by the House in a bipartisan vote of 424 to ZERO.

DWS got away with murder. Greta refuses or is unable to close a sale.

about 50% of them are innocents scared to death, so afraid that their food stamps will stop, terrified seniors who’ve had three generations of your demagoguing democrats telling them that the GOP wants them to get dumped in a snow bank and have to eat cat food.. horrified that cancer treatments will end.. that children will not be educated..

Most rank and file voting democrats are like hostages, so scared of what you will do to them in retribution, they will support anything that you tell them too. Anything.. because you’ve so verbally battered them, like battered wife syndrome, they keep coming back to you to be abused again, and again, and again..

I know too many of them here in Ohio.. decades of democrat lies, so engrained in them, they mouth them in their sleep.

The democrat party is akin to a terrorist groups PR wing, like Sean Finn for the IRA, the democrats make all kinds of excuses, while their policies savage those they claim to help, keeping them scared undereducated and dependent on the benevolent hand of the DNC… which can punish as easily as benefit.

The rest of the democrats are cynical users,.. green with envy and viciously jealous that anyone gets paid more than their sanctimonious self-righteous selves. So utterly convinced of their moral superiority that anyone else doing better than they are, seem in their eyes to be committing a crime against humanity.

They preach diversity and tolerance, yet have none.

Diversity to a liberal is all creeds and colors in virtual lockstep to the democrats leftwing dogma.. any woman or minority that dares to freely think, or adhere to conservative thought is so savagely attacked on a personal level, their children unspared the ire of sneering liberals, that it’s clear it’s a cynical ploy to send the message..

don’t stray from liberal doctrine.. or you’ll F*^$ing pay…

I don’t think all democrats are stupid.. I think many have been horribly misled.. and many more, largely, are seven kinds of cynically evil.. abusers, demagogues and serial liars..

The few decent souls among you, are deeply in denial..

blind to the vile things their fellow dems do in their name.

Grayson,.. Wasserman Schultz, Schumer, Reid, Pelosi.. Obama are prime examples of the worst kinds of serial liars the DNC attracts, the worst kind of cynical users..

republicans throw their bad apples out, ostracize them.. you embrace yours and give them chairman’s gavels.. or run them for a second term as president.

without a hint of regret that you openly ask your leaders to lie to the public as you just did.

On the contrary my English right wing buddy. The pugs won those sits because they managed to demagogue the hell out of the ACA. Once again two can play that game.

I am not your buddy. I suggest that you read this first, “buddy”:

You’re Only Against The Obamacare Mandate Because There’s A Black Man Living In The White House And You Want To See Faux Hispanic – White Jews Shoot Blacks Wearing Hoodies, Who Are Armed Only With Skittles & Iced Teas! Don’t You Dare Claim Otherwise, You KKKrackers!

Save yourself the embarrassment and read it first before calling me a racist. LOL!

“It’s the democrats turn to play the same game your team played in 2010.”

I don’t “have” a team. I am a libertarian. I was a Tory…for one year…in 1988…when our family friend, Baroness Thatcher, was still in 10 Downing…and I was 10 years old.

Again, doing nothing will be worse than anything Paul Ryan could ever serve up. According to the administration, Medicare will “end as we know it” in 2024.

Oh, by the way, you might be interested to know that Americans actually prefer managing their own healthcare. Read the poll numbers and weep, cupcake:

Americans Want More Control Over Their Own Health Care

Here’s a taste:

“Even more remarkably, 65 percent of Americans want Medicare payouts in the form of a credit for use toward a private health plan, compared to 24 percent who don’t.”

Does DWS realize that the Senate hasn’t passed a budget in 3 years? Hello?

smellthecoffee on April 4, 2012 at 4:07 PM

Note the absence of liberal4life.

Schadenfreude on April 4, 2012 at 2:06 PM

Odd, even when present, there is an absence…

I think the Senate Parliamentarian, A Dem and Reid appointee, just ruled that the Senate MUST vote on a budget.
Reid cannot be happy with that.

Jabberwock on April 4, 2012 at 4:14 PM

DWS is called the ‘Chairwoman’ for good reason; I would want not only a chair but a whip, as well.

Heh heh. I love it. What a perfect development for an election year.

I wonder if Debbie has had her Wasserman Test lately…

Jonas Parker on April 4, 2012 at 4:28 PM

A budget is required and needed by every State, City,Business, and family in this Country BUT NOT the Federal Government?
Not to have a Federal budget for the past 3 years as required by the Constitution is nonfeasance of office.
The Declaration and The Constitution outline FIVE (5) branches of government, that are meant to balance.

1. The Administrative
2. The Legislative
3. The Judicial
4. We the People
5. The Free Press (Internet also)

Our rights and responsibilities as the Fourth Branch of government are only one, “TRIAL IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION” and sentence the incumbents to “FROM 4 YEARS TO LIFE WITH NO POSSIBILITY OF RE-ELECTION”.
