You read that right.
After the House voted down President Barack Obama’s budget proposal 414 – 0 in March, today the Senate defeated it 99 – 0. There are 51 Democrats in the Senate (and two Independents that caucus with them). Not one voted for their president’s budget. There are 190 Democrats in the House. Not one voted for their president’s budget.
There are only 535 members in Congress. As of today, 513 are on record opposing Barack Obama’s 2012 budget. No one is on record supporting it.
By contrast, Paul Ryan’s budget passed the House on March 29th with 228 Republican votes, and only 10 party members against. Today, 41 of 47 Republicans voted for Ryan’s budget; short of the 51 needed for passage.
Only one party is trying to govern. The other is refusing to. The American people should take notice and vote accordingly.
