Same old, same old snarky Republican tactics on the budget

 While they hold court on Obamacare, behind the curtains the Republicans are screwing with the country's budget and economy again.  How could we possibly expect anything less from these clowns?

Dems hammer Ryan over budget talks

Rep. Steny Hoyer (Md.), the Democratic whip, said Ryan is slow-walking the process for the same reason GOP leaders refused to go to conference on the House and Senate budgets all year: "Because he does not believe there is any agreement that he can bring back to his caucus that his caucus will support."

"There does not seem to be a serious effort [among Republicans] to reach agreement in the budget conference," Hoyer said during his weekly press briefing in the Capitol. "And the reason for that, of course, is that, by definition, reaching an agreement will require compromise.

"I will reiterate that I don't believe that Mr. Ryan believes that if he did that [compromised], he could bring it back to the House and get an agreement from his caucus," Hoyer added. "And therefore, politically it's not wise for him to do so."

 These guys are absurd, useless, and also dangerous to the immediate future of this country.
