The Republicans leaders are dumping the Cruz-Lee proposal. This would be a good
time for Lee to resign.
Vote on it House.
Pathetic when our leaders can't balance a budget.I'm going
to brag.--I'm out of debt.
This would be a good time for Obama to resign
Link the debt ceiling to the penny plan. Reduce the budget by one penny per
dollar either by targeted cuts agreed upon, or across the board if they
can't agree, and raise the ceiling for 6 months, possibly a year. Next year
do the same. Fix this once and for all. I too will brag that I am
debt free. It wasn't done by making more money. It came by watching the
spending like a hawk.
The President is too busy getting our enemies abroad with Seal team six, an
executive department unit, and administering the new ACA. Senator Lee failed and
should be held accountable to avoid future governmental end around moves.
Obama will go down as the first president to never have a budget passed by
congress. Some will be quick to put the blame on congress. How about putting
the blame on a president that absolutely refuses to negotiate. We have a
president that rules by a philosophy of my way or no way. Sad to say I actually
miss Bill Clinton. I didn't like Clinton's politics but the man could
get both parties together and make some progress. Barack . . . not a chance.
Go Big Blue,I will put the blame on congress, because I can read the
constitution. The budget, including all spending and taxing is responsibility
of the congress most specifically the place where those bills must originate the
House. So I will blame first and foremost the House and second the Senate. The
budget that the President proposed is really not that far from the Ryan budget,
but the House refuses to do anything other than pander to the tea party and play
political games at the expense of the American people. The President and Mr.
Boehner had an agreement in 2011 until Mr. Boehner backed out under tea party
pressure. No Mr. Boehner wants to negotiate but only after he makes a series of
public demands that he knows are dead on arrival. The tea party will bring this
country to its knees.
The Budget and Accounting Act of 1921 requires the president to submit a budget
in February. This President is always late, which is partly because the
president's budget has never been feasible. We just don't have that
much money. The other part is that the delay is designed to make sure the
congress doesn't have time to examine it closely and take out the fat.The president stands on his bully pulpit as I type. Not buying any of
it. He has said he won't negotiate, now he says he has negotiated. To put
it kindly, total absence of truth.
Badgerbadger,And who is required to pass a budget? That would be
congress. Who passes budgets that they know are DOA in the Senate, that would
be the House. No question that the President plays some politics with his
budget proposal, but lets be real the game players are in the House, and they
have the responsibility to pass the budget.
A bit difficult to deal with a pathological liar. Everyone else is to blame but
him. Having beenabandoned by his parents, our president was pampered and
indulged. Not having to answer for his own behavior, he finds it
difficult to deal as an adult with those who differ with him.His behavior
towards the American public, while indulging those he panders too, shows him to
be spiteful and petty during this 'shutdown'. Expect
'childlike' behavior, since we are dealing with such.
barry has done nothing to earn anyone's trust. why believe him to talk
about anything of worth while he is busy weighing in on the redskins, keeping
vets out of the WW II memorial, allowing illegals protest on the mall today, not
allowing travel expense money to go to war survivor relatives to meet caskets at
Dover and leaves money in his wife's shake your ? activity. americans are
experiencing what it means to have a community organizer running the wh.
