    It was a nearly 200 page outline. Maybe you aren't aware of this, but it's actually the case that all spending bills have to originate in the House of Representatives -- not the White House.

    The budget proposal didn't get any votes because it was already supplanted and only submitted for a vote because Republicans were crying about Ryan's budget going down in flames.

Obama has made a lot of claims over the past 2 1/2 years and I don't recall one economic prediction being right so if it isn't on paper, isn't specific, hasn't been scored it means nothing. His claims of 4 trillion in cuts aren't specific and thus you have no idea if they are cuts at all. CBO doesn't score speeches but they will give you a distorted number that you will buy as fact.
    When did Bush put his plan for Social Security on 'paper?' FYI, Obama is "the decider" now.

    Paul Ryans' budget proposal went "down in flames" 40-57 while BHO's went "down in flames" 0-97.

    Barrack Obama is clearly the keeper of the flames.

    What does Bush and SS have to do with the incompetent President we have right now and the issue of the Obama approval rating at 39%. Guess the majority in this country just aren't as smart as you.

    Republicans were trying to pass Ryan's budget. Democrats were not trying to pass Obama's because they were already contemplating additional spending cuts. Democrats did not submit for a vote -- Republicans did.

    Not when his son nearly doubled it?

    At the time Obama beecame president, Reagan and both Bush's alone increased the debt by 8 of the 10 trillion that was passed on to Obama. It still wasn't a problem for you then?

    Only after Obama became president and the debt increased another 12% while he's in the White House did it become a problem for you?

    Can't say I understand why it's just recently a problem for you, I think the problem began under Reagan when it it began growing as a percentage of GDP.

    Yep, you can certainly see how approval ratings distinguish between Reagan and Obama.

    Reagan had an economic plan that was working and led to a landslide re-election. What is the Obama economic plan?

    What was the Reagan economic results 2 years after the end of the recession vs. Obama's?

    And as you can see, their approval ratings were almost identical after the first 50 or so days. Kinda shoots a hole in your approval rating theory, doesn't it?

    btw, Reagan can thank Paul Volker for pulling his fat out of the fire.
