Did You See This Tweet from Brit Hume?


Republican lawmakers charged that President Obama’s failure to deliver a budget by Monday’s deadline is raising questions about his leadership and they vowed to pass legislation that would force the president to produce a budget on time.

“President Obama missed a great opportunity today to help our economy,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said on the House floor Monday. “This was supposed to be the day he submitted his budget to the Congress. But it’s not coming. It’s going to be late. Some reports say it could be a month late and that’s too bad. Our economy could use some presidential leadership right now.”

Obama’s budget is meant to outline his spending priorities for the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1.

This is the fourth time Obama has missed the budget deadline and the GOP used the occasion to try to turn the nation’s attention back to fiscal issues.
