From The Daily Caller:
According to an official in the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, other Democrats have recognized that claim to be false as well. Senator Joe Manchin said, “there’s no excuse” for the Democrats’ failure to pass a new budget. Senator Mark Pryor said, “We’ve had three years with President Obama where we’re not able to get a budget resolution passed.” And Independent Senator Joe Lieberman expressed that he is “disappointed” in Democratic efforts to pass a new budget. And the list goes on.
