Because the Democrat-controlled Congress last year refused to even pass a budget for this year.... which is one of the primary functions of the Congress.

Why didn't they pass a budget last year?


1) The Democrats are unable to cut government spending... their DNA just prevents them from doing it.

2) The Democrats put politics ahead of the good of the country and knew that if they did pass a budget last year, they would have suffered even bigger losses in the November 2010 elections than they did.

Congratulations Democrats!
