This recent approach of "Ok, tell me what you want. Baaahahahaha. No way. Ok now tell me again what you want. Baahahahaha. Keep talking until I hear something I like" is kind of a problem. The Senate should be working through its own budget. If they can't get the votes to pass one, they need to work on a compromise. Sitting on your hands because you can't get exactly what you want is an interesting view of this "Democracy" I've heard so much about.
Yup. Need some movement by both sides.
