President Obama hit the campaign trail today, but he ignored a law requiring him to submit an updated version of his budget to Congress.
“Americans across the political spectrum agree that our country needs a sound financial plan in this dangerous hour,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said in a statement today. “Yet the President has ignored the legal requirement to send his updated budget to Congress.”
Sessions cited a law requiring that “before July 16 of each year, the President shall submit to Congress a supplemental summary of the budget for the fiscal year for which the budget is submitted.”
“We must worry about the failure to issue this required report,” Sessions said. “An updated budget plan will help us understand how deep our debt problem is and how it will impact the proposal he submitted in February.”
Ninety-eight U.S. Senators voted unanimously against Obama’s budget in May.
