    All the President can do is make recommendations. The budget itself MUST BEGIN IN THE HOUSE, per the Constitution of the United States. So let's take a look at what the House has passed.................... Oops, they didn't pass a budget, because they don't have one. I think they need to quit their vacation and go to work, and stop leeching off the American people.

President Obama has been illegally spending at TARP levels of expenditures going on the 5th year. He is able to do this because Harry Reid will not pass a budget, and President Obama will not offer a responsible budget. His own party has repeatedly voted against his proposed "budgets"

    You better come prepared with actual facts next time comrade. NEXT
    Lol....Iguanaman must have found that graph at " ZFACTS"....

    I remember O blaming Bush for the defecit he "inherited" which half was comprised of TARP which Obama voted for.

    TARP, Used to bail out banks after HUD and CRA were given regulatory control to force those banks into making sub-prime loans by Democrats.

    Another lie

    The Republicans have offered proposals as far back as 2008. Harry Reid won't even bring them up for a vote. Remember the "Ryan Plan" that was so demonized? Yea, that was a proposed budget. It also had bipartisan support. The typical response from reactionary Collectivists was that children would die from starvation or something.

    GOP assails Reid on budget punt - POLITICO.com

    Republicans pounced on Majority Leader Harry Reid’s remarks Friday that Democrats won’t bring a budget up for a vote in the Senate this year, accusing him of favoring political expediency over fiscal responsibility.

    Whats the point in sending a budget to Reid if he refuses to allow it onto the floor for a vote ?

    Nice try...not really.

    Increasing spending at the current rate is going to cost all of us our jobs. These public sector jobs cost money from the private sector. Money that would otherwise be used to invest within existing companies, or in the creation of new companies. The biggest Opportunity Cost that is put on the Private Sector is a bloated and inefficient Government that siphons away capital that otherwise would have been put to much better use in regards to actual creation of jobs.

    The President proposes a budget. It is introduced in the House. This is they way it has been for as long as I know. It begins the legislative process in the House, but the President usually authors it (by proxy of course).

    And, yes, the Republicans have a budget:

    More myth than reality. Businsess only spends when people buy. Less people buying means less grwoth. Such is the way it works.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Very weird way of looking at it. Nobody votes on his budget because it won't pass the House. The only budget the House has passed is a budget that would never pass the Senate or be signed by the President. It's a case of two groups yelling past each other. I'm actually being generous here in my view.
