    Senate rejects Obama budget in 99-0 vote - The Hill's Floor Action

    A budget resolution based on President Obama’s 2012 budget failed to get any votes in the Senate on Wednesday.

    In a 99-0 vote, all of the senators rejected the president’s blueprint.

    It’s the second year in a row the Senate has voted down Obama’s budget.

    Democrat-led Senate votes down 4 GOP budgets for 2013
    Wednesday, May 16, 2012 - The Senate on Wednesday rejected every single budget being offered this year, leaving the chamber — and therefore the federal government — without a plan to address Medicare, Social Security and the other major entitlement programs that are driving deficits and debt.

    If Obama vetos budgets then it's up to Congress to either find the votes to override the veto or find a compromise budget that Obama will sign.

    The 100% fail thus far is entirely on CONGRESS, kiddies.

    That's interesting. But this has nothing to do with Obama vetoing a budget.

    Read, then post.
