After rumors leaked that Democrats were working on the budget over Veterans' Day, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has confirmed as much in a statement released yesterday. According to one Democratic Senator on the Budget Committee, "at this critical juncture for America's future, we just don't think we can afford to take a day off."

No official word from Republicans about their Veterans' Day activities, but rumors suggest the only work done by them over the weekend involved setting up their automatic 'out of office' email replies.
