I think Obama needs to look to something a bit more basic....but it gets sticky, since he's contributed to the problem every year for over 4 years
The U.S. hasn't HAD a budget since 2009. Reid has said, repeatedly in different years, anything from the House is dead on arrival and will not get a
vote. Regardless. Don't bother trying. Even Obama's own shot at a budget was defeated without exception in the Senate. Dems voted it down too.
Obama can't do MUCH...but he can do precisely what Texas just did in that special session but with a very hard kicker the Texas Governor didn't have
going for him. Obama could and CAN call a special session, against their will if that's how it's to be, and HOLD them in session..again, against their
will if they so desire it that way...and KEEP THEM THERE until one of three things happen.
1. Hell freezes over and Satan is calling up for some heat
2. They pass a budget. Just one budget, We don't ask for much and the Constitution actually outlines legal duty on this like no other area, in
3. The next election comes to replace those who have been held in Washington EVERY SINGLE DAY between this day and that one.
Obama could do this...but he chooses not to and has, every year. Until he does? Well.. Congress IS the source of the core of the problem here....but
he's enabling them in a way that makes it possible where it wouldn't otherwise be, IMO.
