Always look under the Astroturf mat. Senate Democrats have failed to pass a budget in nearly 1,200 days.

Senate Republicans did something right, stood their ground, and forced Democrats to bow on blocking White House recess appointments during the midterm election break. See? Saying no — HELL NO — can pay off. Via The Hill: Senate Democrats agreed Wednesday night to a Republican demand […]
Our good friend and former Hot Air TV correspondent Jason Mattera, now editor-in-chief at Human Events, tried to ask White House recess appointee/Medicare-Medicaid chief Donald Berwick a few questions about his views.
