Stop the presses! Senator Charles Schumer said on “Meet the Press” that the Democratic Senate will pass a budget this year — a feat they have failed to accomplish for three years despite them being statutorily obligated to do so.
The Senate’s third-ranking Democrat said Sunday that the upper chamber will pass a budget this year, something House Republican leaders have insisted as they’ve agreed to hold a vote on a short-term increase in the nation’s borrowing limit.
“In our budget that we will pass, we will have tax reform, which many of my Republican colleagues like. But it’s going to include revenues,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on NBC News’s “Meet The Press.”
