    This republic is not a democracy. Or at least it did not used to be. Democraccies are three wolves and one lamb voting on what's for dinner. A Republic is an armed sheep.

    That means it is in EVERYBODIES best interests to discourage income inequality. The more poor voters our society allows the more they will contol the Govt.
    Wouldn't it be better if more of us had incomes that were taxable?
    It is a pipe dream of an unreachable utopia outside of Marxism where all are equally poor.

    We can change the laws to make more of a poor person's income taxable.

    Did you enjoy the inaugural coverage today of our TWO TERM PRESIDENT that managed to get sworn in four times in HIS TWO TERMS?

    Jeezus! At least check wikipedia maybe.

    The President submits the budget request each year to Congress for the following fiscal year, as required by the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921. Current law (31 U.S.C. 1105(a))[4] requires the President to submit a budget no earlier than the first Monday in January, and no later than the first Monday in February. Typically, Presidents submit budgets on the first Monday in February.

That's the date on which the hostage-crisis resolving Budget Control Act of 2011 was signed. That act supercedes Congressional budget resolutions for the two covered years. Guess you hadn't heard.

    Sham votes staged by Republicans. You seem to have fallen for them. Pretty silly.

    Yeah, I liked that also. Now he's tied with FDR for the all-time lead.

    The Republicans have not controlled the House for three years and it is a Constitutional obligation to prepare a budget. Keep making excuses thus showing what really is wrong with this country today

    How many Democrat votes did the President's budget get? Seems that excuses are all that you have including placing blame on someone else. You can delegate authority but not responsibility. The Democrats try to delegate responsibility for their own failure and people like you buy it. You are no libertarian, you are a full blown libreral.

    The Senate Democrats do not need a filibuster proof Senate to submit a budget resolution and to not do it violates their responsibility but that is ok with you. It seems easy to blame someone else vs accepting responsibility for your own failures.

    I hope that was some sort of typo. Republicans have had a majority in the House since January 2011. To the detriment of the country, of course. Their arrival became its own little economic downturn, didn't it.

    Actually, the word "budget" does not appear in the Constitution. You may have somehow confused that document with the Budget Act of 1921.

    Right.
    That isn't three years, where was the 2010 and 2011 budgets? I am sure someone as smart as you understands that the fiscal year of the United States runs from October 1 to September 30 and there was no 2010 or 2011 budget just like there isn't a budget now? How many Democratic votes did the President get on his budget?

    Keep making excuses for the disaster that you helped elect twice.
