According to a report by Forbes, The Trump administration is intending to break the law and not submit a budget to Congress for 2017. Congress passed a law in the 1970s requiring a budget to be submitted by February 2.
By not submitting his own budget, not that he has any idea what he’s doing, he clearly wants to pin the blame for a missing budget on Obama. Not that Congress would have any intention of passing it anyway.
Simply put, Trump doesn’t want to do the work and thinks Congress will let him get away with it.
According to Forbes:
Every in-coming president since the Congressional Budget Act went into effect in the mid-1970s has submitted a budget. In many years, those budgets (or amendments to the outgoing president’s final budget) were submitted months after the first-Monday-in-February deadline and were truncated versions of the usual multi-volume presentation. But, a fiscal plan with the new president’s priorities was consistently released for over 4 decades.
Don’t let him get away with it. Like and share this article as many times as you can to let the government know that you won’t stand for it.
