Footnote to 1000 Days

Further to John’s post below on the shame of the Democratic Senate for failing to pass a budget for 1,000 days, Rep. Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Republican Study Committee, notes that the last time the Senate passed a budget, “you had never heard of the iPad, Tiger Woods was only known for his golfing abilities, General Motors had never declared bankruptcy, you had never heard of Swine flu. And the national debt was $4 trillion smaller than it is today.”

The GOP Study Committee offers this short (47 seconds) video highlight reel to drive the point home:
