Would you just listen to him, he calls the media to let the world know that he furloughed some employees why, he wants to highlight the pain of cutbacks and try to blame it on the republicans that he was a failure at leading his party to making more sensible cuts.
What he did not do is call a press conference saying how he was going to cut back on first family vacations to save money, he makes the furloughed employees cut back but he will be damned if he will.

For royalty like Barack Obama, saving money is for the "little people" to do.

This is an easy cut. Obama didn't have a Budget brought before the Senate until this year. Obama's own Party Speaker Harry Reid treats Obama with zero respect. Exactly what he deserves.

480?

It should take anywhere near 48, we have 535 to make a budget, all their staff and they can't agree.

Except on their salary, benefits and raises.

Facts matter. The Repub led House does the hard work of producing a Budget. The Senate Dems didn't even present anything from Obama for the last four years.

Yes they do and all congress did was pass the Ryan budget which was created almost two years ago, they haven't done squat and that includes a budget.
