    Obama budget defeated 99-0 in Senate

    Obama budget defeated 99-0 in Senate
    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.
    Damned republican obstructionists!!! Oh wait....

    Democrats controlling the Senate rejected for the second year in a row Wednesday a budget plan passed by House Republicans.

    Short version for the lazy:

    It's not actually Obama's budget, it just shares some numbers. It was introduced as a stunt by the Republicans, knowing full well the Democrats wouldn't vote for it. (and that they wouldn't vote for it themselves)

    A waste of time to score political points with people like our illustrious OP who wont bother to read anything but the headline.

    edit: Actually, Fox News didn't deem it important enough to tell you this bit. Fair and balanced.
