Budget held hostage: Day 154

New York (CNNMoney) - Thursday was the 154th day the federal government has operated without a budget.

It's also the day that President Obama took the reins and deployed top-ranking officials to talk the matter over with congressional leaders from both parties.

    154 days without a budget and Obummie sends loose cannon Joe to work on the budget settlement. This country is in financial ruin and the 3am phone call is still ringing. Before any of you fools start running your mouth about Bush, Obummie is president and he is either in charge or he needs to resign. He hasn't done anything except spend the taxpayers money and give us a bunch of socialists policies that won't work and cause the debt to go up faster. I bet he doesn't run his finances the way he is this country's.
