Obama budget defeated 414-0

President Obama's budget was defeated 414-0 in the House late Wednesday, in a vote Republicans arranged to try to embarrass him and shelve his plan for the rest of the year.

The vote came as the House worked its way through its own fiscal year 2013 budget proposal, written by Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan. Republicans wrote an amendment that contained Mr. Obama's budget and offered it on the floor, daring Democrats to back the plan, which calls for major tax increases and yet still adds trillions of dollars to the deficit over the next decade.

"Itís not a charade. Itís not a gimmick ó unless what the president sent us is the same," said Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a freshman Republican from South Carolina who sponsored Mr. Obama's proposal for purposes of the debate. "I would encourage the Democrats to embrace this landmark Democrat document and support it. Personally, I will be voting against it."

But no Democrats accepted the challenge.

1. It wasn't "Obama's Budget." It was Ryan's Budget with Obama's Budget tacked-on as an amendment.

Of course, The Moonie Times would use that as their headline.

4. Republicans: Winning!

They should hire Charlie Sheen to stump for their campaign. Hope I didn't spill any beans.

8. Locking, Source is Misleading (Headline is Opinion)

I'm locking. Normally Moonie Times is acceptable, but in this case they cross the line with their "opinionated" headline.

Post the latest news from mainstream news websites and blogs. Important news of national interest only. No analysis or opinion pieces. No duplicates. News stories must have been published within the last 12 hours. Use the published title of the story as the title of the discussion thread.

In accordance with SOP, I am locking because of "OPINION" title.
