What policies can the Republicans run against?

Oba mama doesn't have much done so far as the Democrats have deserted him in Congress. Of course, without passing a budget little harm is happening in Washington.

I hope this continues for many years until we get the government out of ruining our private lives. No budget increases mean no new taxes and new socialist programs which the left and the right want to ram down our throats.

Obama budget defeated 99-0 in Senate - Washington Times

The White House has held its proposal out as a "balanced approach" to beginning to rein in deficits. It calls for tax increases to begin to offset higher spending, and would begin to level off debt as a percentage of the economy by 2022. It would produce $6.4 trillion in new deficits over that time. By contrast the chief Republican alternative from the House GOP would notch just $3.1 trillion in deficits, and three Senate Republican alternatives would all come in below $2 trillion. The Senate is holding votes Wednesday on Mr. Obama's budget, the House GOP's budget and the three Senate Republican alternatives. None was expected to gain the 50 votes needed to pass the chamber.
