Congress Rejects Obama Budget 513 To Zero

From The Hill:

Senate rejects Obama budget in 99-0 vote

By Erik Wasson and Daniel Strauss – 05/16/12

A budget resolution based on President Obama’s 2013 budget failed to get any votes in the Senate on Wednesday.

In a 99-0 vote, all of the senators present rejected the president’s blueprint.

It’s the second year in a row the Senate has voted down Obama’s budget.

Obama’s 2012 budget failed 97 to 0 last May after Obama himself last April said he wanted deeper deficit cuts.

Hilarious. The Hill tries to make it sound like even Obama was against his own budget last year.

‘Poor Obama. He wanted deeper deficit cuts, but they just wouldn’t let him put them in his own budget. Instead, they made him increase spending.’

The House earlier this year unanimously rejected Obama’s budget

The House vote was 414-0. Which means the vote totals this year for Obama’s budget were 513 to ZERO.

Which is pretty darned amazing, given the number of crackpots we have in Congress.

But even Olympia Snowe didn’t vote for Obama’s budget. Imagine.

    So long as there’s no Budget, there’s no rules for spending.

    It’s all “Emergency Spending”

    Could it be conspiracy?

    Why, hell yes it is
