Point: No Time Frame On Budget

Press secretary Jay Carney could not say when President Obama will release his budget, when asked by reporters aboard Air Force One on Monday. He missed the deadline for submitting a fiscal 2014 budget — the fourth time in five years. COUNTERPOINT: From The Hill, “The House Wednesday passed “The Require a PLAN Act,” a Republican attempt to force President Obama to outline his plan to eliminate the budget deficit and estimate when it would be completed. As expected, the vote was mostly party line, although 26 Democrats supported the legislation. This follows last month’s House-passed “No Budget, No Pay Act,” which threatened to withhold pay from senators until they passed a budget.”
