Republicans are upset that although President Obama released his picks for the NCAA men’s basketball final four bracket, he didn’t submit to Congress his budget for the next fiscal year as he was supposed to do by the first Monday in February. I don’t know why Republicans are so upset, since any budget that Obama submitted would be dead on arrival in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.
Just don’t think for a minute that Obama’s budget would be rejected because Republicans are fiscal conservatives who want to follow the Constitution, eliminate the deficit, balance the budget, reign in federal spending, and decrease the national debt.
The budget recently passed by the Republicans in the House contains unconstitutional spending, has a built-in deficit, is not balanced, does not reign in federal spending, and increases the national debt.
The problem: They want nothing to do with Orly Taitz, an Israeli émigré who has racked up tens of thousands of dollars in court fines for filing frivolous lawsuits challenging President Barack Obama’s U.S. citizenship.
In a series of close contests – she’s backed Van Tran in California, Joe Heck in Nevada and Steve Pearce in New Mexico so far – her help is raising a thorny issue that has already tripped up several Republicans this cycle, and they’re running away from her.”Joe’s never met Orly. He’s not a birther. If she considers herself the queen of the birthers – if that’s the only thing that her endorsement is based on, she’s not in line with Joe,” said Heck spokeswoman Mari Nakashima.
“Let me tell you all we have to say about that,” Van Tran campaign manager George Andrews said. “We never sought her endorsement, and we never even received her endorsement on file,” he said.
