Republicans refuse to pass the spending bills that were due in October

So they can hurt the Democrats! From CNN:
The GOP plan is to stretch current funding amounts until February 15, leaving for the new Democratic leaders the problem of how to deal with tough spending and deficit issues.

Top Democratic leaders blasted Republicans for leaving behind more than $460 billion in unfinished budget business that promises to clutter the Democratic agenda early next year.

"They are going to leave a mess as they go out," said Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi, D-California. "It's been a do-nothing Congress and as they go out the door they are going to validate the decision of the American people that change was necessary."

What could I possibly add to Speaker-Elect Pelosi's remarks?
