No Obama budget is relevant or credible

info@islandpacket.comApril 15, 2013 

Why is it even relevant what President Barack Obama puts in his "budget"? So far, in four-plus years as president, he hasn't received a single vote in the Senate for any of his so-called "budgets." In fact, it is obvious that Obama intentionally proposes "budgets" that are so absurd that they will never get enacted by Congress. This gives him the cover he needs to blame Congress for the debt, for closing the White House tours, withholding cancer treatment, closing control towers and any other cheap shots at the American people he wants to take so he can get them angry at Republicans.
