So, the President is now unemcumbered by those nasty thoughts of re-election, and can now feel free to submit a fiscally sound budget, without pandering to his constituents, right? Well, not quite.
Buddy, Can You Spare A....
While both Democrats and Republicans are essentially labeling the Budget as D.O.A., you shouldn't take their word for it. Take a look for yourself.
If it's a bit overwhelming, maybe we could advocate to scrape a few dollars up from somewhere and charge OMB with producing a document that's a little easier for most Americans to digest? Currently, members of Congress have huge staffs dedicated to tracking the flow of money, and even they can't follow it all. What chance do you and I have?
In the meantime, here are some analyists who have taken a preliminary stab.
