    No kidding. We're assured the Hussein offers "4 Trillion in cuts", but what you don't see is its all in Defense and over 10 years.

    Well. if you don't have the balls to write down your plan on paper.. just how can you be taken seriously or be considered as taking the budget or this debt sealing debate seriously..

    All this time and not one detail from the OweBama/Democrat Party.. it's ridiculous..

    lets recap shall we?

    the president kicks it all off, here ya go;

    The President, according to the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, must submit a budget to Congress each year. In its current form, federal budget legislation law (31 U.S.C. 1105(a)) specifies that the President submit a budget between the first Monday in January and the first Monday in February.

    In recent times, the President's budget submission, entitled Budget of the U.S. Government, has been issued in the first week of February.


    Thus, President George W. Bush submitted the FY2007 budget in February 2006.


    The President's budget submission, along with supporting documents and historical budget data, can be found at the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) website. The President's budget contains detailed information on spending and revenue proposals, along with policy proposals and initiatives with significant budgetary implications.

    Each year in March, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) publishes an analysis of the President's budget proposals. CBO budget report and other publications can be found at the CBO's website. CBO computes a current law baseline projection that is intended to estimate what federal spending and revenues would be in the absence of new legislation for the current fiscal year and for the coming 10 fiscal years.

    The House and Senate Budget Committees begin consideration of President's budget proposals in February and March. Other committees with budgetary responsibilities submit requests and estimates to the Budget committees during this time. The Budget committees each submit a budget resolution by April 1. The House and Senate each consider those budget resolutions and are expected to pass them, possibly with amendments, by April 15. Budget resolutions specify funding levels for appropriations committees and subcommittees.

    Appropriations committees, starting with allocations in the budget resolution, put together appropriations bills, which may be considered in the House after May 15. Once appropriations committees pass their bills, they are considered by the House and Senate. A conference committee is typically required to resolve differences between House and Senate bills. Once a conference bill has passed both chambers of Congress, it is sent to the President, who may sign the bill or veto. If he signs, the bill becomes law. Otherwise, Congress must pass another bill to avoid a shutdown of at least part of the federal government.

    note the dates.....so, anyone want to take a guess and name the last date a budget was passed?

    so anyone remember the framework that obama surfaced at his state of the union?

    $3.8 trillion budget proposal that includes big tax increases on individuals and businesses, and expands the federal deficit by more than $5.5 trillion by the end of the decade, including a record $1.6 trillion next year.

    Obama's Budget Adds $1 Trillion in Taxes, Balloons Federal Deficit - Money Morning


    well? and what happened it never got "submitted" formally and we spent from march to late april arguing over the budget for 2011 that was not done last year, and got after all that, a savings of .....38.5 billion.....please.

    Because Obama wanted this crisis. That is why 'dear Leader' did not start working on this a year ago.
