Orszag Yaz Moment?

Hearing that Rahm is pondering greener pastures, Peter Orszag is apparently unwilling to hold down the fort solo.

Or is it more than just Rahm? Is budgeting just too ‘last administration’ for this one?

Seriously. Well past their April 15 deadline to pass a budget, congressional Democrats have yet to even introduce one. Nor do they intend to, since doing so would force them to go on record about the massive future deficits their policies would create. Instead, they plan to use what’s called a “deeming resolution” (where have we heard that phrase before?) to fund government programs while staying mum on the red ink.

Update: In a rare outburst of leadership within the Obama Administration, Orszag will apparently pull chocks next month. Two tears in a bucket, man.
