Opening Arguments

Two ways

One way to do it:

President Obama has not been able to prepare a budget--despite having an entire Office of Management and Budget devoted to the task, and despite knowing the annual deadline.

Another way:

Gov. Mike Pence is rolling out his spending blueprint for Indiana one day after taking office.

The Pence administration plans to unveil its first budget before a hearing of the State Budget Committee this afternoon.

Which budget are you talking about, Leo?  The president and the OMB proposes a budget, and it has done so every year (the 2013 proposal is a 256-page PDF at http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/budget/fy2013/assets/budget.pdf) on time.

But as I said, the president only proposes a budget.  It's up to congress to pass the actual budget, which they haven't done in years.  When you count the number of bills passed, Truman's "do nothing Congress" was extremely productive in comparison.

Although I agree with Will Rogers.  We ought to be glad we don't get all the government we pay for.
