What budget?

Since the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have been controlled by the Republican Party, led by Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, this country has not had a fiscal year (October 1 through September 30) budget in five years. All people have seen are pending shutdowns followed by temporary spending bills. Apparently, the people who voted these screwballs into office do not care about the American people and only care about the billionaires and millionaires of this country. Wake up, people, before these billionaires and millionaires get us into another shooting war with millions of young men and women being killed.
