Obama misses budget deadline, again

Obama goes golfingFor the fourth time in his five years in office, President Obama has failed to submit his budget on time. The Budget Act requires the president to submit his budget on the first Monday of February.

Acting Budget Director Jeff Zients blamed the late passage of the “fiscal cliff” deal early last month, according to the Washington Times.

“Because these issues were not resolved until the American Taxpayer Relief Act was enacted on Jan. 2, 2013, the administration was forced to delay some of its FY 2014 budget preparations, which will in turn delay the budget’s submission to Congress,” Zients wrote to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan, R-Wisc., last month.

“Ryan’s office says that Obama has missed the budget deadline more than any president since the 1920s,” The Hill reported.

Obama missed his budget deadline every year but 2010, the Times report added. President George W. Bush was late twice — in 2001 and 2006.

Not that anyone takes Obama’s budgets seriously.

His 2012 budget was unanimously rejected by both houses of Congress, failing to garner a single vote. In late March, Obama’s budget was rejected on a 0-414 roll call in the House, and in May, on a 0-99 roll call in the Senate.
