Yesterday Sen Jeff Sessions (R. Alabama) protested a vote on the VA Appropriations bill that was on the Senate floor. Sessions had argued that the Senate cannot take up a spending bill when there is not a budget. As everyone knows, the Democrat-controlled Senate has not fulfilled it's Constitutional obligation to produce a budget in over 2 years.
All 56 Democrat senators voted against his protest (all 40 present Republican Senators supported Sessions), and so the Democrats in the senate moved forward a spending bill without first passing a budget.
The obvious conclusion to draw here is that the Dem's continue to view the constitution as an irritant and as a set of rules that they do not need to heed. Allowing the Dem's to erode the Constitution starts our country off on a dangerous path - we now have lawmakers who view themselves as above the law.
