Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after President Obama missed the legally-mandated deadline for submitting his budget to Congress:
"After failing to submit a budget on time for four of the last five years, how can the American people take the President's pledges to cut spending as anything less than window dressing?
"For more than three and a half years President Obama and Senate Democrats have refused to pass a budget for the federal government. During that time families and small businesses across Texas have had to meet deadlines and live within their means, and there is no reason their government should operate any differently."
