Breaking: Obama budget Defeated 99-0 in Senate (Zero is 0-513 now)
The Washington Times ^ | 16 May 2012 | Steven Dinan

Posted on 05/16/2012 1:51:18 PM PDT by DCBryan1

President Obama's budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it.

Coupled with the House's rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama's budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year.

Republicans forced the vote by offering the president's plan on the Senate floor.

Democrats disputed that it was actually the president's plan, arguing that the slim amendment didn't actually match Mr. Obama's budget document, which ran thousands of pages. But Republicans said they used all of the president's numbers in the proposal, so it faithfully represented his plan.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, even challenged Democrats to point out any errors in the numbers and he would correct them — a challenge no Democrats took up.

LOL! Worst record ever! Even the declaration of war against the Japasese had a dissenting voice! Epic fail for an epic failure of the potus!

Smart election year poliitics by the GOP. I hammer them for their stupidities. They deserve credit where it is due. This was the cheapest ad buy of the election year, and it can be used up and down tickets everywhere.

Very smart politics. Bravo Zulu.

Wait a minute. Wait a minute. One Senator apparently either wasn’t there, or voted “present”. Who’s da bum?

Probably Senator Kirk from Illinois who’s out for rehabilitation from his stroke. At least, that would be my guess...

I suspect they don’t want to be seen as supporting more spending and taxes in an election year.
