Most open and transparent administration evah witholding budget update

Gee I wonder why?

If these numbers are released prior to a vote on health care, it is surely doomed.

WASHINGTON – The White House is being forced to acknowledge the wide gap between its once-upbeat predictions about the economy and today’s bleak landscape.

The administration’s annual midsummer budget update is sure to show higher deficits and unemployment and slower growth than projected in President Barack Obama‘s budget in February and update in May, and that could complicate his efforts to get his signature health care and global-warming proposals through Congress.

The release of the update — usually scheduled for mid-July — has been put off until the middle of next month, giving rise to speculation the White House is delaying the bad news at least until Congress leaves town Aug. 7 on its summer recess.

The administration is pressing for votes before then on its $1 trillion health care initiative, which lawmakers are arguing over how to finance.

  1. Gee, I wonder why in the World they would want to keep this out of the public eye?

    My prediction… It will be released on 4:30 PM on a Friday afternoon…

  2. President Obama said last night that he did not know the whole story, then why he jumped into conclusion that Cambridge policeman acted stupidly.
    By saying that as the president, he already made offical verdict. I think it is a stupid comment.
