I don't know. You're the one who posted it. Why'd you do it? It was GWB-originated, delayed to March and signed by Obama who had the gun to him, bankruptcies looming, huge layoffs. But remember, read the whole thing next time, and notice that Brokaw had a lot of "buts" in his discourse.
Damn, Jacques is AWOL again. Pelosi/Obama add One Trillion Dollar$ to the deficit in FY2009 and Jacques blames .... Bush!!! And then Jacques runs over the hill!Rogue Scholar 05 wrote:
Excusez-moi, when the president submits a budget request it goes to the ... Speaker of the House. If the Speaker is of the same party as the president it is usually amended very little by Speaker Pelosi is not only not in the same party as Bush, she is a radical progressive. The fact is Pelosi sat on the budget and it was not voted on at all in the House until after Bush left office. Further the deficit has grown by more than ONE TRILLION DOLLAE$. In other words, it was no longer the Bush budget. Obama owned it 100%.
FY2009 Budget Deficit
$407 billion (requested)[by Bush]
$1.413 trillion (enacted)[by Obama]

And the reverse is true when the Speaker is a Republican and the President a Democrat like under Gingrich and Clinton. If it was not for Newt, those four budgets would not have been balanced!!!
Any president can only sign into law bills that are passed by both Houses of Congress!
