The White House on Monday responded to criticism that it has again missed the deadline to submit the president’s budget to Congress by arguing that what’s in the budget matters more than when it arrives.
Asked aboard Air Force One about the missed deadline, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney contended that reporters should focus on “substance over deadlines” and took aim at House Republicans for passing what he termed “highly partisan” budgets that lack public support.
You all got that right? Substance over deadlines. Yeah those pesky deadlines are for the little people.
