  •  I think Obama has presented a budget every year (5+ / 0-)

    so I dont think that is an issue.

    It's been delayed this year, I believe, because of the fiscal cliff deal and probably because OMB budget director Jack Lew leaving.

    I think Broun explained his vote by saying, it's the Congress that controls the purse strings.

    •  I don't know (3+ / 0-)

      all the details, I just heard Obama was not submitting a budget to Congress at the normal deadline.  I'm sure he has produced a budget in the past, and will later this year, but of course, if it can be twisted into looking like Obama is a big spending liberal who doesn't care about budgets or budget deficits, Republicans will do so.

      That's an interesting argument by Broun, I assumed he was just off on some tangent somewhere voting against this.  Usually when there's a constitutional argument the whole Teabagger crowd - Gohmert, Bachmann, Labrador, etc., will vote the same way.

    •  Broun is actually 100% right in this case! n/t (1+ / 0-)
