Via The Hill:
House GOP leaders needled Senate Democrats on Tuesday for failing to write a budget for four years, saying 179 round-trips to the moon could have been taken in the time being.
Republicans also say three Pentagons could have been built and a mountain-climbing team could have made it to the top of Everest 292 times since Senate Democrats last wrote a budget resolution, in the spring of 2009.
The criticism from the GOP comes after Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said his conference would write a budget this spring. Schumer on Sunday said the budget would be used as a vehicle to move tax reform legislation.
Schumer pledged to do a budget after House Republican leaders said they would approve a three-month extension of the debt ceiling that would block senators from receiving their paychecks if a budget isn’t passed.
