If you study politics, you know why that bdget got no Democratic votes. The Dems knew it had no chance of becoming law, and that the Republicans would beat them over the head with it in the congressional races, so leadership made a decision that no members would support it. That is politics.<quoted text>Who blocked Obama's 2nd budget proposal in 2010 when Democrats controlled both houses? Who blocked Obama's last budget proposal that got zero votes in the house and the Democratic Senate.(97-0 and 414-0) This president cannot even bring his own party together to back him. The Democratic Senate has not passed an Obama budget proposal in 3 years. But blame it on the Tea Party, not the President. Or should I say wannabe dictator?
I watched and I assume you did also as Republicans used the ACA savings, taken from Medicare as a campaign issue, even though the Ryan Budget which passed out of the House contained virtually the same cuts...which were NOT used for alternative healthcare. That is politics too....like either or not.
