Fox News Business - Rep. Anne Marie Buerkle (R-NY), who hails from outside Syracuse in upstate New York, has been mightily frustrated with the U.S. Senate’s lackadaisical approach to passing a budget for the U.S. government.
The House of Representatives passed a budget resolution on April 15, 2011. But the Senate hasn’t passed a budget resolution in more than two years, 785 days to be exact. The last time the U.S. Senate passed a budget was on April 29, 2009, due to gridlock. Instead, the government has been funded via continuing resolutions.
