“Republicans for years have complained bitterly that Senate Democrats last produced a comprehensive budget in 2009 and say that, if Obama and fellow Democrats want to borrow more money, they'll have to outline a spending plan,” AP writes. “Senate Democrats announced Sunday that they will oblige and produce a budget — but warned it will include higher taxes that Republicans oppose.”
Said Senate Democrats’ No. 2 Chuck Schumer: ‘‘We’re going to do a budget this year. And it’s going to have revenues in it. And our Republican colleagues better get used to that fact.’’
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) doesn’t like Obama’s gun push.
