Obama's Budget Abdication Breaks 92 Year Tradition


Barack Obama certainly enjoys the trappings and perks of the Office of President. The actual job of being President, however, doesn't seem to interest him. His desire to avoid being tied to any specifics of any proposal have caused him to do what no modern President has done. He is the first President since 1921 to abdicate the task of drafting a federal budget to Congress.

Congress established the modern budget process in 1921. Under the terms of the law, the President is required to submit a budget for the federal government no later than the first Monday in February. Obama has only met this statutory deadline once during his Presidency, a record worse than any modern President. Obama has missed the deadline 4 times. Prior to him, all the Presidents back to 1921 together missed the deadline twice.

Pentagon officials recently advised the House Armed Services Committee that the President's budget wouldn't be delivered until April 8th, a 9 week delay that trumps any previous delay. Worse, though, the long delay means that Congress will initiate its own debate on the budget, without input from the Executive Branch.

On Tuesday, Rep. Paul Ryan unveiled the House GOP budget proposal. On Wednesday, Senate Democrats will unveil their first budget proposal in 4 years. By the time Obama gets around to submitted his mandated proposal, Congress will have had almost a month to deliberate on its proposals.

As we've seen throughout his tenure, Obama prefers lofty rhetoric over the day-to-day give-and-take required to enact legislation. He spoke in general, focus-tested, words about ObamaCare, the stimulus, financial services regulation and a host of other issues, while leaving the gritty, horse-trading work to Congress.

It should be pretty easy for him, as his budget philosophy can be summarized in one line: "Spend more taxpayer money".

Asking this President to do a budget? Well that's just racist!

I guess a link to the "aint' nobody got time for that" song would be out of the question.

Well, he's never held a real job before.
Is he magically supposed to start acting like he does now?

Sad reality is people just don't care.
I'll mock Barry as much as I can because he's earned it.
But it's "us" I'm more worried about.

Your Right people dont care just go look at the General Forum compared to how many are reading and posting then look here to how many read and post in the Politicle Forum.

Now multiply across the country. When the stuff starts getting stripped from them well it will be to late for them to care they will be slaves

Most likely never done an honest days work in his life. Just jets back and forth to Hawaii, and entertains rappers at the white hut on our money.
