    Here’s the Reuters summary of the budget. The total budget is about $3.5 billion, but only about $1 trillion is discretionary, and that’s the bit Obama and Reuters focussed on.

    Over in the real world, the deficit continues to plummet towards surplus.

    What “budget binge”? There hasn’t been a budget since when? The Binge part is right, though…

    “Over in the real world, the deficit continues to plummet towards surplus.”

    In the real world, a no deficit budget doesn’t necessarily mean surplus. It could mean that loans were built into the budget that would cover the the lack of cash on hand or income to cover all of the things that are in the budget. It’s nice to be able to say the deficit is plummeting , but it does nothing to alleviate the dramatic increase in the debt.

    FY 2009 budget was passed under GWB.
    FY 2010 budget was not passed by Democrat-controlled House (http://thehill.com/homenews/house/104635-dems-wont-pass-budget)
    FY 2011 budget funded through continuing resolutions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_United_States_federal_budget). House passed budget proposal rejected by Senate (http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/house/145259-house-passes-republican-budget-for-fy-2011-in-x-y-vote).
    FY 2012 budget as submitted by Obama was rejected by GOP House. Alternative submitted by House rejected by Democrat-controlled Senate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_United_States_federal_budget)
    FY 2013 budget submitted by Obama was unanimously defeated in both House and Senate. Government funded through continuing resolutions.
    FY 2014 Ryan budget passed by House defeated in Democrat-controlled Senate (http://www.politico.com/story/2013/03/paul-ryan-budget-vote-senate-democrats-89187.html).
    .
    I will spare you the pain of reading: Neither House nor Senate cared a whit for any budget proposal coming from Obama. While under GOP control, the House produced and passed a budget every year. The one year when Obama’s party controlled all of CONgress, the House didn’t pass a budget. The Democrat-controlled Senate has rejected all the House budgets (as well as Obama’s budgets).

    Obama spends far more than Pres. Bush. There is just on comparison.

    The House can’t get ANYTHING through the Senate!

    So many weep and wail over leaving todays spending to the children and the grandchildren. But suggest that could be avoided by paying more tax, and the reply is oh no we can’t do that. Too bad kids, I guess you’re stuck with irresponsible and greedy parents.

    That’s the Reaganomics card, only useable by the Pentagon, and CEOs using the taxpayers as the bank: with help from W and the $3 TRILLION and counting for Iraq.
