In a show of complete and utter contempt for anything resembling fiscal rationality the Democrats of the US Senate have offered up a budget.
A budget that increases spending by 62% over the next ten years.
That ain’t Bush’s fault.
On Wednesday, WA Sen. Patty Murray unveiled the first budget proposal from Senate Democrats in 4 years. Looking at the top-line numbers, it is easy to see why the Democrats were so coy with their spending plans. Virtually ignoring the debt crisis that is causing the public deep anxiety, the Democrats plan to boost spending by 62% over the next ten years.
Here’s the rest: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/03/14/senate-dem-budget-hikes-spending-62
I expect most of the Democrat media (NY Times, etc.) will be praising the utter wonderfulness of this budget.

The battle rages over the Republican attemtps to inject sanity into our government process. GlobalWarming.org has a writeup of the arguments made in the House committee. The last paragraph is the author’s summary of the Democrat position:
I would summarize the core premise of Waxman, Markey, and Inslee’s opposition to H.R. 910 as follows: We know what is good for America and the world. It’s a future without fossil fuels. We can’t persuade the people’s representatives to support our agenda and turn it into law. Therefore, it is necessary for EPA to ‘enact’ our agenda regardless of the defeat of cap-and-trade, the November 2010 elections, and the separation of powers. The triumph of our agenda is more important than any constitutional principle that might interfere with it.
the rest: The Battle over H.R. 910: Waxman, Markey, Inslee Put Greenhouse Agenda Ahead of Constitutional Principle
Keep in mind that it is a summary and those exact words were not stated, by anyone. I have no problem believing that Waxman & Co believe in the extreme climate alarm scenarios, or maybe they are determined to please various special interest groups, and I have no problem believing that the summary above is an accurate portrayal of their thoughts.
WUWT also has the summary and a link to the site and the usual load of interesting comments.
Waxman, Markey, and Inslee’s argument
A commenter links to more of Waxman’s brilliance on the subject. Given his previous statements I’d say the Waxman absolutely believes in the “coming catastrophe.”
