The drunken sailors passed the budget last night.

The Democrat drunken sailors approved Pres. Obama’s new budget late last night. While you were probably sleeping, your little ones down the hall just took on a burden that Americans don't seem to be able to fully grasp.

The sailors approved the $3.5 trillion budget during a time of economic crisis not seen in decades.

Voting along party lines, the House and Senate approved budget blueprints that would trim Obama’s spending proposals for the fiscal year that begins in October and curtail his plans to cut taxes. The blueprints, however, would permit work to begin on the central goals of Obama’s presidency: an expansion of health-care coverage for the uninsured, more money for college loans and a cap-and-trade system to reduce gases that contribute to global warming.

What?? Curtail cutting taxes????! You mean that mantra during the campaign that 95% of get a tax cut was disingenuous? Said only to get elected? I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

When will people realized that a Democrat will NEVER EVER cut your taxes no matter what he says.

This budget didn't get ONE SINGLE GOP vote. Maybe this tea party thing is waking them up to the fact that we aren't going to put up with Republicans that say one thing and vote another. Even our usual betrayer, Susan Collins had this to say of why she would not vote for it:

Sen. Susan Collins, a Maine Republican who sided with Obama on his $787 billion economic stimulus plan, said she couldn't support the White House plan this time.

"It would double the public debt in 5 years, triple it in 10 years. ... That is not sustainable. It poses a threat to the basic health of our economy," Collins said.

Even two Democrats stood strong against this wall of debt. Ben Nelson (D-NE) and Evan Bayh (D-IN).

Sen. Judd Gregg, who has become the Senate's version of the Emergency Siren Warning System, had this to say:

"The practical implications of this is bankruptcy for the United States," said Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H. "There's no other way around it. If we maintain the proposals which are in this budget over the 10-year period that this budget covers, this country will go bankrupt. People will not buy our debt; our dollar will become devalued."

But who really listens to that siren anyway?

Meanwhile unemployment crept up to 8.5% in March, according to numbers out this morning -- up from 8.1% last month, shedding another 663,000 jobs.

We can poke fun at Michelle Obama for touching the Queen, a protocol no no, get angry at Obama for bowing at King Abdullah, laugh at the Obama's tacky gifts, OR we can focus on what is really important here. An economic crisis that is only going to get worse under this budget.

I encourage you to find the closest tea party to you and bring your friends and attend on April 15th. This is just the beginning.

Our voices will be heard.
