Senate Democrats, including Senate Budget Committee chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray, are hiding their budget from their Republican colleagues, Breitbart News has learned exclusively. Murray did share her budget plan with her Democratic colleagues on Tuesday.
The budget is scheduled for markup on Wednesday morning in committee, and senators are only expected to read opening statements at the hearing. It will not be until later on Wednesday that Republicans will be allowed to read the full budget proposal.
House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, on the other hand, shared his budget with his Democratic colleagues ahead of its release. It is unclear why Murray will not show the budget to Republicans ahead of the Wednesday morning markup hearing. A Murray spokesman has not immediately returned Breitbart News request for comment.
A Senate Republican aide told Breitbart News it is possible Senate Democrats will not share their budget ahead of its public release with their colleagues across the aisle because it embarrasses them.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Well, you have to pass it before you can know what’s in it.
Seems I recall every other supposed obama budget was full of so much crap that no one on either side took it seriously and all voted it down in big numbers. Why would this one be any different?
No I don't want on any ping lists
Obviously, that skank Murray is not as transparent as the Ubama White House.
This is not Obama's budget. He's said that he would issue his proposals in April (they were due Feb 1). This is the Senate's budget -- the first in four years.
A secret cannot be kept in today’s internet age...oxy moron thought on their part, but then again they are oxy morons.
