Speaker of the House John Boehner criticized President Obama for failing to submit his budget proposal to Congress ahead of the government deadline.

The President missed the deadline for the fourth time in five years. He is required by the Budget and Accounting Act to submit his budget request to Congress by the first Monday of February.

Boehner and other Republican House members are hoping to submit new legislation that would force the President into presenting them with a plan to jumpstart economic growth and cut federal spending.

President Obama has only met his February budget deadline once during his presidency and that was back in 2011.
