Biden’s Gun Control Report Handed In On Time; Obama’s Budget Proposal Late (Again)

Barack Obama, Joe Biden

Today, Vice President Joe Biden’s will release the policy recommendations of his White House-mandated task force on guns–on time. Yesterday, the White House informed House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) that it would not meet its legal deadline for presenting a budget–for the fourth time.

In a sign of President Obama’s priorities, the gun control recommendations were expedited, while budget decisions continue to be left to the last minute, tripping from one politically manufactured crisis to the next.

The Vice President’s task force was only convened on month ago, in the wake of the Sandy Hook atrocity in Newtown, Connecticut. It was able to reports its conclusions to the President yesterday despite working through the winter holidays (possibly with the help of the “progressive community’s wish list” on gun control, ready-made by the left-wing Center for American Progress).

But President Obama has not been able to prepare a budget–despite having an entire Office of Management and Budget devoted to the task, and despite knowing the annual deadline.
