GOP Slams White House for Budget Delay

Ad Feedback

Republicans are criticizing the White House for not meeting Monday's deadline to produce a federal budget.

For the third straight year, the Obama administration hasn't produced a spending plan on time, and it is the fourth delay in the last five years.

"President Obama missed a great opportunity today to help our economy," Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said. "This was supposed to be the day he submitted his budget to the Congress. But it's not coming. It's going to be late. Some reports say it could be a month late."

The administration hasn't said when it will release its budget for next year.

Congressional Republicans will vote on a bill Wednesday that would require the president to submit a plan that balances the budget eventually.

Republicans have repeatedly said Washington is spending too much. But the president and Democratic leaders are still calling for more tax revenue
