Video: Durbin deflects when asked why Senate hasn't passed a budget in over 800 days

Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the second-ranking Democratic embarrasment in the upper chamber of Congress, deflects Bret Baier's question when he asks the Springfield liberal why the Senate hasn't passed a budget in over 800 days.

"It's called 60 votes," he replied.

Durbin has spent almost entire adult life either as a legislator or working for one. Does he really believe what he uttered this morning? Odd thing: until 2010 Congress passed a budget every year since 1974. Durbin has served either in the House or the Senate since 1983.
