Supernova Hypocrisy Alert: On the same day media reports President Obama telling congress he will not meet lawfully required budget deadline – Obama proclaims “we are not a dead beat nation”

WASHINGTON DC - The White House has informed House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that it will miss the legal deadline for sending a budget to Congress. […] “Late Friday evening, Deputy Director Zients confirmed that for the fourth time in five years, the president’s budget will not be submitted in compliance with the law,” the aide said.  (article)

Yet today President Obama presents his administration as concerned about the fiscal state of the union, and declares “we are not a deadbeat nation”.

The last federal budget was signed into law Sept of 2007 by President Bush.   Since then not a single day of President Obama’s term(s) in office have any accompanying budget.

obama_delivers budget_The fiscal year 2013 budget proposal from the President was so absurd that not a single Democrat in either the House or Senate voted for it.    In actuality that proposal received ZERO votes in either chamber from either party.  Zero.

The Senate has refused to even PRESENT a budget proposal in the past 3 years.

Even when Democrats controlled The House of Representatives, and held a  filibuster proof majority in the Senate, and President Obama was in the White House, for the years 2009 and 2010, they did not present -nor pass or legislate- a budget.

Not one.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan And Sen. Sessions Discuss GOP Budget PlanThe only federal budgets to pass congress in the last FIVE years were passed by House Republicans for fiscal years 2012 and 2013, “The Ryan Plans” as they were called.   Yet Harry Reid failed to allow them to come to a vote in the Senate, choosing instead to operate the federal budget with a series of continuing resolutions to kick the can……

The budgetary can has been kicked, and kicked, and kicked again, down the road, by the Democrats, for almost five continuous years.

….. and President Obama states:   “we are not a deadbeat nation”.

Humor in Nature

    It is time that BHO goes away
    We don’t care what he has to say
    He lies and he cheats
    While his practice depletes
    Our incomes! We’ll all have to pay!!!

    No way will this thug just ignore
    Though the rule of law he’ll abhore
    We’ve all had enough
    Don’t mean to be tough
    But our country can’t take anymore!

    Hmmm…perhaps Barack is Kenyan dialect for ‘Kingfish’. Yessuh missuh Congressmens suh, da budget be in da pocket of my uthha suit. Be back in a minute…

    What did this clown do in Southside Chicago for all those years? Three card monte and shell-pea games on the street? How many real presidents have ever gone for the length of time he has without a budget? This guy’s a walking black-guy-with-money joke but for real – and we get to eat the problems 3-card Barry’s cooking up.

    What should be done is to refuse to increase the debt limit and force default, in plain fact to shut down the government ….and keep it shut down as long as necessary since it is no longer functioning as a legitimate and lawful government. Force any continuing resolution measures into budget reconciliation process and stonewall Obama until legal process requirements for lawful government operations are restored, which will require a budget to be presented and approved. No more games. What will Obama do then ….abolish Congress ?

      I agree…and I work for a Federal agency. His comments concerning the debt limit are completely untrue. Essentially what he is doing is mixing true debt spending (i.e. payment of interest, social security, etc) with “normal” operating expenses of the federal government. Reductions, real reductions, are needed in all areas of federal spending…but he is dead set against that. His arrogant tone makes me sick…I just don’t understand why someone in Congress can’t speak out on this. This man will drive us into the ground!!

      I hope your last phrase “….abolish Congress?” wasn’t intended as a rhetorical bit. I have no doubt he would abolish Congress in a moment, and will…when the time is “right.”

    If you haven’t read the bit from AT last summer about current services spending and continuing resolutions…..here’s the link. The definitions and the horrible precedents will illuminate precisely what this gang is doing, and has been deliberately doing for 4 years.

    And herein very likely is the reason for the Senate’s dereliction of its duty to pass a budget for each fiscal year. The conclusion an observer draws is the Senate wants this estimated $1 trillion of “temporary” spending to be added to the permanent budget baseline by stealth.
    Which brings up a Washington concept called the current services budget. Stick with us here; this is important.

    In the 1974 Budget Act, Congress slipped this concept into the budgeting process. What it means is this: spending in the next fiscal year that supports all the programs — the current services – in the current fiscal year is automatic: it is the baseline.

    Think about that for a second. The “no change in spending” condition in Washingtonese means that if, for instance, there are more claimants to a service such as Social Security or Medicare, that is “no change.” It also means that all the expenditures to maintain current services represent “no change.” That is, the promotions, pay increases, adjustments for inflation to maintain current services represent “no change.”

    Why is this important? Because the method for financing the government without a budget is a “continuing resolution.” And a continuing resolution is used to maintain current services.
