Barack Obama Budget Defeated 414 – 0 … Yet Another Obama Victory, Maybe He Will Have More “Flexibility” After the Election?
President Barack Obama’s budget goes down in flames and is defeated 414-0. Talk about your bi-partisan votes. Not one Democrat voted for Obama’s budget. As stated by Jammie Wearing Fool, obviously all 414 individuals are racist.
The vote came as the House worked its way through its own fiscal year 2013 budget proposal, written by Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan. Republicans wrote an amendment that contained Mr. Obama’s budget and offered it on the floor, daring Democrats to back the plan, which calls for major tax increases and yet still adds trillions of dollars to the deficit over the next decade.
“It’s not a charade. It’s not a gimmick — unless what the president sent us is the same,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a freshman Republican from South Carolina who sponsored Mr. Obama’s proposal for purposes of the debate. “I would encourage the Democrats to embrace this landmark Democrat document and support it. Personally, I will be voting against it.”
But no Democrats accepted the challenge.
Wow, this heading into an election and not one Democrat voted for Obama’s budget. Can you say the rats are fleeing the ship? The Democrats are in a pickle. No one is going to want to get near Obama’s coattails whether it has to do with the economy, jobs, the budget, national debt, gas prices or Obamacare.
