White House tells Paul Ryan it won’t meet budget deadline
The Hill ^ | 01/14/13 | Erik Wasson

Posted on 01/14/2013 6:29:45 PM PST by george76

The White House has informed House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that it will miss the legal deadline for sending a budget to Congress.

Acting Budget Director Jeff Zients told Ryan in a letter delivered Friday that the budget will not be delivered by Feb. 4, as required by law.

...

Under the law, President Obama must submit a budget by the first Monday in February, but he has met the deadline only once. The annual budget submission is supposed to start a congressional budgeting process, but that has also broken down. The Senate last passed a budget resolution in 2009.

Obama will now receive a Stop spending order. Ryan should defund everything.

Why doesn’t the GOP tell the Dems no debt limit deal until there is a budget?

Answer...because they have not guts or integrity either.

The first thing to be defunded should be Planned Parenthood, followed by Michelle Obama’s staff and vacations, followed by Obama’s salary, security detail, etc - since he’s not doing his job he shouldn’t get paid.

***

Won’t happen. Ryan and the rest have shown that when push comes to shove, they are gutless.

Not one of them — Der Fuehrer, congress, the various government agencies, bureaus, departments, support staff or the federal courts — should receive a paycheck until we have a balanced budget — one that cuts spending and has no increase in the debt ceiling.

Even when he submits it, don’t Obama’s budgets get zero votes, even from democrats?

I was no fan of Romney, but I'd wager that a Romney administration would never be late with a proposed budget.

How hard is this? Didn’t anyone in the Republican House leadership know that there would be a request for disaster relief? Why didn’t the Speaker call a press conference and lay the marker down that the House would only consider assistance that was directly related to the storm damage in NY and NJ, and dare anyone to put a bunch of pork in it.

It’s always shocking to see these idiots (republicans) act like yellow-belly nancy boys in front of the rats, but get all riled up against conservatives. Until they show some amount of balls, I will care less about the GOP. It’s gotten to that point.

Pretty obvious now, which is why a collapse is inevitable.

My tagline has been the same for years.

People thought I was a crazy extremist when I started using it.

Before that, sometime in my freeper past, my tagline was:

“Liberals are blind. They are the pawns of leftists who know exactly what they are doing.”

I’d really like to have a huddle with a group of liberals and bang their heads together like coconuts to try to wake them out of their Lethian dreamstate.

even Romney and Bush look reasonable compared to the petty tyrant we have now. But neither of them would fight. We have to recruit warriors and even then it probably wouldn’t be enough given the indoctrination and demographics

Thanks george76.
...has informed House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that it will miss the legal deadline for sending a budget...
Either shut everything down and take the blame, or extend the deadline and get something no one will vote for, and take the blame.

Since the President and his staff can’t do a budget...I’d just admit to that and let Congress run the budget business by themselves.

That’s what happens when you replace a rule of law with a rule of lawyers.

Our gallant Republican leaders are too much too busy pushing “ILLEGAL Amnesty” to worry about such trivial matters as asking the Dems for a budget. Git with it man, you just don't understand how things work in Washington. Just pay your taxes and shut up. /sarc
