0-99: Senate Unanimously Rejects President’s Budget

For the second year in a row, President Obama’s budget was rejected without a single vote in its favor in the United States Senate. This year’s vote tally was slightly worse than last year’s vote of 0-97.

Sessions Details Danger Of Majority’s Budget Law Defiance As Debt Mounts

May 16–Speaking on the Senate floor today, Sen. Sessions detailed the dangers of the United States’ current financial state. For example, total U.S. government debt exceeds that of the Eurozone and UK combined (http://1.usa.gov/IBkTc8), and the U.S.’ per person government debt is worse than that of Greece (http://1.usa.gov/KxmEIT).

Obama budget defeated 99-0 in Senate

By Stephen Dinan

“…President Obama’s budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it.

Coupled with the House’s rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama’s budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year.

Republicans forced the vote by offering the president’s plan on the Senate floor.

Democrats disputed that it was actually the president’s plan, arguing that the slim amendment didn’t actually match Mr. Obama’s budget document, which ran thousands of pages. But Republicans said they used all of the president’s numbers in the proposal, so it faithfully represented his plan.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, even challenged Democrats to point out any errors in the numbers and he would correct them — a challenge no Democrats took up.

“A stunning development for the president of the United States in his fourth year in office,” Mr. Sessions said of the unanimous opposition.

The White House has held its proposal out as a “balanced approach” to beginning to rein in deficits. It calls for tax increases to begin to offset higher spending, and would begin to level off debt as a percentage of the economy by 2022. It would produce $6.4 trillion in new deficits over that time.

By contrast the chief Republican alternative from the House GOP would notch just $3.1 trillion in deficits, and three Senate Republican alternatives would all come in below $2 trillion.”
