We’ve actually heard two female senators boast that they could get the budget written and passed in one week!

Well the women of the Senate may be given that opportunity. According to high-ranking Senate sources, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), newly minted Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, is working closely with Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) to get a Senate budget. If they accomplish this goal, it will be first Senate budget in over three years!

The new Senate budget package is rumored to be split 50-50 between spending cuts and new taxes. If Murray’s Committee adopts the proposal it could be voted upon as early as the week of March 18th. Squaring off with Paul Ryan and his budget will be a different story.
