Zero Democrats vote to proceed on Obama budget, fails 0-97

Zero Senate Democrats voted to move forward on President Obama's 2012 budget proposal, and the motion to proceed on it failed by a unanimous 0-97 vote.

What this means is that thus far, no Senate Democrat has voted in favor of any budget plan.

As Guy Benson notes, this was the same Obama budget that Democrats effusively praised when it was released in February.
