How a Budget Resolution Doesn’t Go to Conference

Senate Democrats frustrated by Republican objections to forming a House-Senate conference committee on the budget have made a cartoon anthropomorphizing their long-suffering budget resolution.

It’s sort of the “How a Budget Resolution Doesn’t Become A Law” version of “How a Bill Becomes a Law.”

In the animated video “I’m Just a Budget,” the said budget resolution sings a song about why he hasn’t been able to go to Congress 100 days after the Senate passed him.

It features Senate floor cameos from Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, offering their pleas for “regular order,” followed by quick clips of Sens. Randy Paul, R-Ky., Ted Cruz, R-Texas; and Pat Toomey, R-Pa., saying “I object” to unanimous consent agreements to send the resolution to a conference with the House.
