    White House tells Paul Ryan it won’t meet budget deadline
    By Erik Wasson - 01/14/13 12:06 PM ET

    The White House has informed House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that it will miss the legal deadline for sending a budget to Congress.

    Acting Budget Director Jeff Zients told Ryan (R-Wis.) in a letter late Friday that the budget will not be delivered by Feb. 4, as required by law.

    In the letter, Zients says the administration is "working diligently on our budget request."

    The letter blames the late passage of the “fiscal cliff” deal for the delay, saying that because tax and spending issues were not resolved until Jan. 2, "the administration was forced to delay some of its FY 2014 budget preparations, which in turn will delay the budget's submission to Congress."

    "We will submit it to Congress as soon as possible," Zients writes.

    Ryan last Wednesday had asked the White House in a letter if it would miss the deadline.

    They are breaking the law, can we press charges against them? let me see, first they would say we have no standing and then who would be the law enforcement officer.
    I'm not overly impressed with our sytem any longer, there is no provision for what to do with willful lawbreakers.

    Its not really a law if there is no penalty for not complying, it is merely a politely worded suggestion.

    Its just like the law of passing a budget in the senate every year. There is no teeth in the law, no penalties. And you know the libs... give them an inch and they can't be stopped.

    Precisely and this is also the way the US Constitution is working, there are no penalties for Politicians that defy and willfully break the Constitution, apparently it is merely a nice suggestion in this country, it doesn't seem to have any teeth.

    Obama hasn't passed a budget since he became President. What makes people think he will start now?

    Obama was saying today that raising the debt ceiling doesn't authorize more spending. Does he think we are really that stupid? Well, I guess I should say is 'Does he think the people who can see through him are really that stupid?' ..... He doesn't want to cut spending, he want to put us further in debt. So much so that it will take a thousand years to get out of it.

    He needs to cut spending. And the first things he can cut are Welfare payments and Elected officials salary's.

    He could help by taking cheaper vacations, we ought to just buy him a ranch, it would cost us far less in the long run.
