This Chart Shows How Much Fed Debt Per Household Has Risen Since Reid's Senate Passed a Budget

"Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Friday vowed to refuse to work with Mitt Romney should the GOP candidate win the presidential election.

“Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable,” Sen. Reid said in a statement.

"Mitt Romney has demonstrated that he lacks the courage to stand up to the tea party, kowtowing to their demands time and again. There is nothing in Mitt Romney's record to suggest he would act any differently as president," the statement added.

But you know what? The idea that Sen. Reid doesn’t want to accomplish anything shouldn’t surprise anyone. Indeed, as majority leader, it has been more than 1,200 days since Reid's senate has passed a budget.

And do you know what has happened since then? Federal debt per household has risen by a whopping $43,000, as the following chart from the Senate Budget Committee Republican staff under Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) clearly illustrates:

Good job, guys.

Final Thought: Remember how Democrats went on and on about Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) remarks about denying President Obama a second term?

How much you want to bet Sen. Reid gets a pass for vowing to stonewall Mitt Romney?
