    Epic Failure. And that's an understatement.


    'President Obama's budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it.

    Coupled with the House's rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama's budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year.'

    "A stunning development for the president of the United States in his fourth year in office," Mr. Sessions said of the unanimous opposition.'

    Obama's speech: "People, people, I wasn't born in Kenya. I just want to turn America into Kenya. Vote for my budge plan to do just that."

    Are you disagreeing with ABC?
    The White House today reacted to news that representations of President Obama’s budget had been voted down by the House and Senate by decrying the introduction of the amendments, by Republicans, as “gimmicks.”

    Yes, it was his budget:

    "Democrats disputed that it was actually the president's plan, arguing that the slim amendment didn't actually match Mr. Obama's budget document, which ran thousands of pages. But Republicans said they used all of the president's numbers in the proposal, so it faithfully represented his plan.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, even challenged Democrats to point out any errors in the numbers and he would correct them — a challenge no Democrats took up."

    Who cares? The republicans are once again using our nation's budget as a political weapon of mass distraction. NO ONE in congress has the least interest in actually passing a budget.
