With President Obama having a disastrous 4 years of losing Democrats in the House and Senate, he will now have to face his opponents in the federal budget ring. The media and his supporters have given him a pass on not getting a budget implemented in the last six years. This year will be different with the House/Senate being revamped with budget conscious members.

Rebecca Shabad at TheHill.com has an excellent timeline of what the President faces in the next coming months regarding the 2016 budget. I suggest taking a look at the article for the detailed write up after each date listed.

February 2: Obama’s budget deadline

February 27: DHS funding runs out

March 15: Debt limit suspension expires

April 1: GOP budget resolution?

September 30: Shutdown deadline

October 1: Fiscal 2016 begins
