Oh, Yeah: Where's the Senate Budget Committee?

Hennessey, a sober observer, raises a very pertinent point.

FY12 budget resolution – This is a Congressional-only document that does not involve the President. The recently House-passed Ryan budget was the House version. Senate Budget Committee Chairman has done nothing (visible) so far on this. In theory the House-passed and Senate-passed versions should have been conferenced and the conference report passed in both Houses by April 15th. This deadline often slips, but the Senate majority appears completely AWOL this year. Maybe Chairman Conrad is waiting to see what happens in the Gang of Six?

That was posted 4/22, and I don't recall hearing anything of substance from Conrad since.

Sightings, anyone? Bueller?
