How many of us could go to work for over 3 years and fail to deliver on your basic job requirements and not get fired? Well that’s exactly what we have with Senator Harry Reid.  On October 29, 2012 it will have been 3.5 years or 1277 days without a budget.

So how does the government work then without a budget?  It’s simple, they are operating on the budget which was put in place from 2009. This is when Nancy Pelosi controlled the House. That budget was passed by the Senate, Harry Reid, and signed by the President Barack Obama. That budget which is the highest budget we have ever seen, this annual budget is what the country is running on for the past 3 years. Is it any wonder we are overspending?

HOWEVER, since 2009, the House of Representatives have passed several budgets and sent to the Senate which have been not voted on by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.  We need to demand a change.  Harry Reid has sworn to uphold and defend the constitution and all laws.  Yet he has been derelict of duty for over 3 years.   Where is the leadership in Washington?  Our own President has shown ZERO leadership.  Why?

Well both Harry Reid and Barack Obama are fundamentally ok with running the government with the 2009 budget, simply put, it’s large enough to do what they want.

Looking ahead to the end of the year is the Fiscal Cliff.  Why hasn’t the President or Harry Reid as leaders of the government stepped up and are trying to prevent this?  Well simply put, both will blame the Republicans.   They are ok with having all the increases in taxes, after all it gives them even more money to spend.  As long as they can blame the Republicans, they’ll keep spending.

It’s clearly time for a change.  In addition to having a change in the Presidency, we need a change in the leadership in the Senate.   Let’s hope we get some real change in 2013!
