President Obama has achieved what was once thought of as the impossible. Both Houses rejected his budget unanimously. Yup not a single vote. no president has done this much in the name of co-operation and unity in bi-partisian politics on Capital Hill.
Senate Democrats and Republicans unanimously rejected President Obama’s proposed budget this afternoon. The final vote tally was 99-0.
Likewise, the House also unanimously rejected the budget in March.
Prior to the vote, Senate Budget Committee ranking member Jeff Sessions blasted the budget. “It was voted 414-0 in the House this year,” said Sessions. I suspect in an hour or so it will go down again on the floor of the Senate by unanimous vote. That speaks a lot. That says a lot. It indicates the sad state of affairs in which we are in. It’s deeply disappointing.”
Obama promised that Washington politics would be different.
