Democrats in House try to hide their bogus schemes

NY Post Editorial:
Having won control of the House, Democrats are opting to skip a key test of seriousness: They’re not even going to try to pass a budget resolution.

That would, after all, expose not only their divisions, but also the costs of their most-vaunted ideas, from Medicare for All to the Green New Deal.

And Speaker Nancy Pelosi can’t have that.

Budgets are a chance to show a practical vision for where you want to take the country, but a host of Democratic lawmakers and staff told Politico that any effort to agree on priorities would bring yet another public intra-party battle.

And, after the humiliating collapse of efforts to call out Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks, that battle is all too likely to wind up as a win for the lunatic fringe.

In fact, Democrats have been avoiding the normal order of business for years now. Pelosi opted against a budget in 2010, when her party controlled the White House and the Senate, too. And then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also avoided setting priorities, in favor of omnibus measures rushed through against a ticking clock so that no particular line item saw much discussion.
.They must think that their policies would be a tough sell if they had to reveal them.
