McCarthy: Yeah, Obama’s Failure to Submit a Budget on Time is So Bush League

I'm not sure what the right wing fetish is about lying regarding the federal budget. Its a matter of public record, there have been 4 budgets submitted by the president, passed by congress and signed into law every one of those 4 years.

Of course it is, Jerry. Anyone who has even a couple of functioning brain cells (that leaves out most democrat/regressives) knows that the democrats have not passed a budget since Ø first took office.

If I'm not mistaken, the Repub House of Reps passed budgets but senile Harry Reid blocked them. He should be in an assisted living home and obama should be in jail.

If nothing else, six, you are entertaining. I did not think it possible to be so uninformed (possibly, falsely informed would be more appropriate).

Look up the federal budget of what ever year you would like.

Example the 2012 budget was submitted on April 14th 2011 passed Dec. 23rd.

Public Law 111-26

You can even download the entire law at the Government Printing Office web site.

The last budget Obama sent to Congress was unanimously rejected by BOTH sides of the aisle.

You are not going to find anything from 111 that was passed in 2012. The 111th Congress was in 2009. *smile*

What six and others try to pass off as budgets, for the most part, are either continuing resolutions, or spending authorizations.

That is a continuing resolution, not a budget.

Aren't you getting tired, Six?

Psydoc, thank you for your persistence here. I have read other people, particularly that Forbes article, claiming that this "no budget in four years" is simply not true. I had no idea how to research it.

You are welcome, HyacinthClare. What the media, and regressive/democrats are trying to do is convince people that continuing resolutions that keep grubrmnt spending authorization going are budgets, they are not. They do not fulfill the statutory requirement for a yearly budget. The only body in our grubrmnt that has passed a budget every year since da Ø was elected is the republican controlled house of representatives.

Okay, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) didn’t actually say that. But fans of America’s favorite pastime will appreciate his remarks during a recent press conference comparing President Obama’s mind-boggling budget breakdown to the failures of a struggling MLB batter who’s, er, “earned” a one way ticket back to the minors:

[T]he Budget and Accounting Act of 1921 requires that the president submit a budget on the first Monday in February. He’s had five opportunities to do it, and he’s missed the deadline four of the five times. If any of you are...
