Skip to comments.White House delay of budget proposal infuriates Republicans
Posted on 01/23/2012 7:13:05 PM PST by Kaslin
The White House is delaying for one week the release of President Obama's budget for the 2013 fiscal year that starts Oct. 1, a decision that administration officials say was based on "the need to finalize decisions and technical details" but which Republicans say is a direct violation of law.
"This will mark the third time in four years the president has missed his statutory requirement to present a budget on time, while trillion-dollar budget deficits continue to mount. As the president announces another missed deadline, tomorrow marks the 1,000th day Senate Democrats have gone without any budget at all," said House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, called it "an inauspicious way to launch his State of the Union address."

Sadly, infuriated Republicans do... nothing. So who cares?
I fear for our Republic.
Okay....start by de-funding Obamacare completely, de-funding ALL illegal un-elected Czars, de-funding the EPA, the DOE, the Department of Education, DHS, Planned Parenthood, ACORN and clones, etc., etc.
Let's see how SERIOUS Republicans are about cutting spending.
The only fear I have left for our Republic is that it doesn’t get a decent burial. It’s already dead.
Bunch of mealy mouthed whiney little wusses for Republicans, Man up and CANCEL the OBAMA STATE OF THE UNION SHOW, Send him a note telling him to submit his Address in writing to the Congress and GO HOME. Yes Congress has that ABSOLUTE RIGHT.
Since we didn’t have a budget for 2011 or 2012, why do we need one for 2013? We should have a constitutional amendment that would remove Congress and the POTUS from office without pay and benefits if a budget is not submitted and approved by the first day of the fiscal year.
Well of course...in News media speak (that spoon feeds millions) if the Republicans would just give him all that the democrats want, this wouldn’t have to be hyperpartisan politics.
So you “hyperpartisan” repubs...DO SOMETHING! Make this fool, nobama, sweat blood about this.
As Tina Turner would say:
“What's law got to do with it.”
If Obama can circumvent the Constitution, he can circumvent anything and get away with it.
Big Media will not report on this so the masses will never find out. Having Big Media in your pocket has it’s perks. You (Obama) NEVER have to take responsibility for your criminal activity.
You are mistaken at his power.
Obama will SUCCESSFULLY BLAME the GOP for budget delay
after they condone HIM, which does in fact make
them culpable and responsible.
So do I my FRiend
We missed an opportunity once but we will not let an opening pass again.
Stand tall Soldier
We will win
So true. I’m sick of hearing how the republicans are infuriated over this and that. They know what to do to make things happen they just have no will to do it.
My Mom asked me the other day why the GOP leadership won’t do anything to stop Obama’s crazy policies. I asked her this question: “If Obama gets re-elected how will that change Boehner and McConnell’s lives?” The answer is that it won’t. They will still have their cushy jobs and salaries and they can furiously rail agains’t the machine for another 4 years all the while getting re-elected themselves by promising to fight Obama. Its like a self feeding mechanism. They are not going to rock the boat and endanger their own self interest. Sad but true.
He is a liar.I saw his campaign commercial tonight on Fox.So many lies.
The dems are corrupt but the GOP don’t really care.
One more time. Don’t get mad. Get even.
If this faction of the BOHICA Party had any cojones, they would stop passing the “continuing resolutions”. They are nothing less than condoning 0bambi’s unconstitutional behavior.
Please explain. I don’t read it that way.
They are whining and complaining that Obama has not fulfilled his statutory requirements on submitting a budget, instead of complaining they should ACT and DO SOMETHING, Cancelling the State of the Union Show would be a good start to show the people how to deal with a petulant, pathetic liar, that refuses to do his job.
What are they going to do about it, give Obama the frowning of a lifetime?
