Dem Legacy: No budget, just more debt

In an email to constituents, Congressman Rob Woodall (R-GA) notes it's been a long time since we had an official U.S. budget. And Woodall notes the void goes back to when Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate:
Today marks the 800th day that the Senate Democrats last thought the federal government needed a budget—to put this in perspective, it took 404 days to write, approve and ratify our U.S. Constitution; and only 633 days to accumulate over $3 trillion in new debt under the Obama Administration.  Now, our nation is hanging on the brink of a full-blown debt crisis.  It is time to clear out the mess of over regulation that’s inhibiting our economic growth and foster an environment that will make small business and entrepreneurship thrive.  Time is running out and I urge the Senate to join the House in passing a budget measure that will ensure that America pays its bills by cutting spending and removing federal barriers so that Americans can get back to work.  
Woodall attached this video pitch for less government spending and less regulation to his constituent communication:

I like what he's saying. But elected Republicans must get beyond just articulating what they believe. We hear a lot of promising rhetoric out of DC. And we see a lot of symbolic votes.

What we need now is a Republican Party that's got the will and creativity to actually rollback some of the Democrat's economy wrecking madness.

Actions speak louder than words. And there's a bunch of conservative voters who grow increasingly impatient for real action.
