1. Why would anyone that has taken and passed 8th grade civics ...

even suggest that President Obama should even be involved in listing spending cuts, other than as an advisory exercise?

When I was in school, many, many, many years ago, I was taught that the President's budget was merely an announcement of his administrations funding priorities ... it was the House's job, starting the the Budget Committee, to come up with the spending scheme, that is voted on by the full House. The President's role is to either sign or veto that budget ... and during the sausage making process to indicate what he can, or cannot live with, i.e., sign.

Teabilly Hack spouting more Rightwing misinformation to be used in his 2014 campaign. This fake
