Budget Based On Obama’s Doesn’t Even Get One Vote In The House
Embarrassing for the President:
The House on Wednesday night unanimously rejected an alternative budget proposal based on President Obama’s 2013 budget plan, dispatching it in a 0-414 rout.
The vote came just hours after the White House cast the pending vote as a political “gimmick,” an apparent attempt to downplay what many expected to be an ugly-looking vote for the White House.
And it’s not the first time budgets from Obama have been shot down:
Obama’s budget plans have a poor track record in Congress over the last year. In May 2011, 97 senators voted against a motion to take up his 2012 budget plan — no senator voted in favor of the motion.
The fact that not a single Representative was willing to vote for this budget, and not a single Senator was willing to vote for Obama’s budget last year, just shows how unrealistic Obama’s budget proposals have been.
