It’s easy to find unanimous votes in favor of various bills and resolutions in the House of Representatives, but unanimously against?
Let me know if this is truly historic, or just profoundly embarrassing for Obama:
President Obama’s budget was defeated 414-0 in the House late Wednesday, in a vote Republicans arranged to try to embarrass him and shelve his plan for the rest of the year.
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.
Not even Nancy Pelosi voted for it.
It doesn’t look promising in the Senate, either, which last year unanimously defeated Obama’s budget, 97-0.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Donks are playing a game I don’t understand. It’s clear by now that Harry Reid and the other Jackasses in the Senate have no intention of passing a budget, yet Obama keeps sending his proposals to Capitol Hill. Is there a strategy there?
The Budget Act requires the President to send a budget request by the “first Tuesday in February”, the Congress is required to pass a budget by April 15 of the same year.
This year Obama sent the budget request 6 days late.
Barry’s above such petty things as laws and duty (and integrity). How dare you suggest otherwise.
My take on the no new budget is that by using continuing resolutions, they are able to maintain the a steady growth of all current budget items. It also means that a whole bunch of budget rules hammered out in the past stay in effect.
A budget puts stuff down on paper.
It pins you, and makes you show your real priorities.
The Collective HATES that kind of thing.
Using one of Obama’s nicknames as a headline?
Republiklans, playing games…nothing more.
It’s a two team sport, sport.
It is indeed, but this particular instance is Republiklans playing games.
I guess the liberturd dumbocrats are playing the same game? Ehh Rix?
You are just being mean to a dead man . Robert Byrd was a Democrat. he would not be pleased to be a Republikan. at all.
BTW all the black members of Congress from 1865 -1935 were Republican.
Yeah, that notorious Republikan, Harry “Obstructions” Reid.
Oh, and ALLLLLLLLLLLL those Republikans in the House who drugged Nanny Pelosi and her buds, and made them vote against President Pond-Scum.
Is there ANYTHING they cannot do…???
What a shame. Can’t spell. Can’t see the writing on the wall.
Living in such a delusional world must be cool at times!
Is it a game if the Dems can’t muster even one Yea among them?
RixRiver, is there not a single Democrat in the House or Senate who will stand with the President?
“Republiklans, playing games…nothing more.”
I see. So, bringing up the President’s budget for a vote is ‘playing games’.
And not bringing it up for a vote? Would that be ‘playing games’, too?
Maybe we wouldn’t be ‘playing games’ if Obama managed to put forth a document that could garner a bit more support than 0-414.
No, it’s the GOP pointing out the audacity of a dope.
Obama didn’t need the republicans to “embarrass him”. He has shown on a daily basis he’s perfectly capable of beclowning himself.
I don’t thing the Bamster took this “budget” any more seriously than the house repubs. The only people who took it seriously were the brain dead twirps in the mainstream media.
Thy’re not brain-dead. They just know that it has to be passed before they can learn what’s in it.

Let’s not panic like a bunch of democrats…
Profoundly embarrassing if Nancy Pelosi voted against it.
Hey, Bad Luck Barry delivered on “bipartisanship”!
It failed 0-414. 0 yeas, 414 nays. Just being persnickety!
What a slam if Pelosi voted against it, unless she voted present.
“Republicans wrote an amendment that contained Mr. Obama’s budget and offered it on the floor.”
What was the Bill concerning that the amendment was attached to?

Never mind Nancy Pelosi, the biggest ballwasher of them all, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, voted nay. I mean, she’d wash Harry Reid’s balls if Obama asked her to.
LMAO! This is the best response yet.
It’s great that Champ has the whole House united…
It annoys me to no end that we pay vast sums to bureaucrats to gin up Obama’s budgets, which boil down to something The Onion would produce. He just sits there and laughs at “We the people” after slapping us with his spending and his bowing to communist leaders.
“Let me know if this is truly historic, or just profoundly embarrassing for Obama”
No reason it can’t be both…. ;-p
Neither, really, just theatrics– of the sort pulled against Reagan when he lost similar votes on his budget:
Can we please, please, please move beyond this petty, nonsensical Kabuki theatre BS or are minds so stuck and warped as to view even a hangnail as being fatal to this administration?
Simple entertainments, I suppose.
I think that the democrats are terrified with the prospect of losing even more seats in November. I think this was similar to grabbing a life ring with their “ship of state” rapidly taking on water.
Hopefully November will see the Senate fall into GOP hands…
