Obama signs 2011 budget deal into law<quoted text>
Okay, they rejected his budget in 2012. They just refused to pass any budget in 3 years because of the upcoming election. My bad.
It was the second year in a row the Senate voted down Obama’s budget.
January 26, 2010
The Senate has rejected a plan backed by President Barack Obama to create a bipartisan task force to tackle the deficit this year.
Does the last one count? It was an election year.
This budget BS is pretty moot anyway with almost 70% of the budget going to mandatory spending. In case your head is still on backwards that means they can only do battle over 30% of the budget. For a frame of reference, in 2013 the deficit is 24% of the budget and Defense makes up 2/3 of discretionary spending.
