Tonight Republican lawmakers are blasting President Obama for missing his budget deadline again.
So how latest -- president's budget going to be in this time -- knows Jeremy herb joins us Jeremy how latest the president's budget maybe it's our daily right.
It is the president was supposed to deliver his budget the first Monday in February.
And obviously he hasn't done that so now today we learned from congressional sources that the budget is supposed to come out on April 8 which -- be a full nine weeks.
After when it was supposed to be here I didn't and he's a -- about a lot of good the first Monday in February he is required by law on this and -- this will be the fourth time out of his five budgets.
That he has not hit that deadline he supposed to had I an offense as you point out the 25 years ago and other -- try to visit as President Reagan.
Was it was behind he didn't get his budget on time that's happened is that so it's just the democratic president had Republican presents to the same thing it's renting and every president going back at least LBJ has missed the deadline.
Once and some of them twice so it is it is.
You know even as required by -- is something that we see.
Basically every president do what's their excuse.
Well right today the White House blamed congress they said the there's -- Fox's -- right that I'm surprised you right ticket price ISS enterprise July -- was this -- -- -- -- -- congress this -- because -- -- uncertainty.
Over the fiscal cliff in January over the sequestered.
And they so they wouldn't wasn't White House -- -- idea in the first place well it certainly I don't take I think we have.
You know both both sides here I think you're gonna you know have some blame here on in terms of the budget.
Interestingly we're gonna see budgets coming next week from both the house and the senate before the president's budget and that's the wrong way to do it it's normally the president puts out his budget.
And then the congress looks at it and then does their budgets this time it's the other way around -- -- repugnant hasn't all right -- his can get his budget out next week in democratic senator Patty Murray.
On behalf of the US senate can get and the Democrats can get the senate by Jeff why can't the president get his -- Think that is a question many people in congress are wondering.
You know hey if this -- -- a point that Republicans have hit over and over again that the president isn't serious about -- he's not getting his budget.
The democratic senate hasn't done a budget until 2009 and -- may.
You know are changing that's -- that's missing from Obama.
You know this is the fourth year -- a five he hasn't.
Put a budget out clean it didn't set a budget is enormously complicated but it's not as -- this a big surprise -- it was still it's a big surprise of the kind of consider -- and it's not like they don't happen like that there's a big step to do it.
-- -- and you know it's interesting because in past years except for the very first year it was a -- to lay it wasn't too bad this time you know it's going to be more than two months -- I'm other presidents have fallen in April and may president George W.
Bush President Clinton.
Both times they did it though it is when they were first going into office.
This time and obviously the president has been an office get a sense it said the administration what did tad bit embarrassed at the house the senate can get there's and ahead of them.
If they did it certainly not showing -- you know that they had a good game face right they certainly do you know we heard from the west briefing -- today you know this is -- his -- the and they over sequester air over.
The fiscal cliff and you know this this is not our -- basically is what we're hand.
