Obama submitted budget as required

In the March 20 issue of The News, there was a letter titled, “Why hasn’t Obama submitted a budget?” This letter repeats a constant refrain in blog articles and even in the speeches given by elected officials.

You have a right to your opinions. You don’t have right to make up facts.

If you type into your internet search engine: www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/Overview, you will see the president’s budget submission. Near the top of the ribbon on the left-hand column, you will see the president’s budget message, followed by a drop-down menu for every part of the budget he submitted.

The budget message is dated Feb. 13, the date it was delivered to Congress as required by the law.
