“This budget isn’t a serious document, it’s a campaign brochure,” said House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. Obama and his Democratic allies saw things differently. “It’s a road map for creating jobs with good wages and expanding opportunity for all Americans,” the president said while visiting an elementary school in the nation’s capital. He added that his plan would help curb budget deficits with higher taxes on the wealthy and other savings, “not by putting the burden on folks who can least afford it.” Despite those words, pressure for lawmakers to take serious swipes at budget shortfalls has faded. After four years of record-setting annual deficits that each exceeded $1 trillion, the budget gap dropped to $680 billion in 2013 and could continue downward.

It was that involvement that inspired Adegbiles opponents, including Faulkners widow, to argue that he should be disqualified from holding any publicly appointed position in the justice system. Today is a good day for Pennsylvania, for America, and for those who believe in justice, said Sen. Patrick J. Toomey (R-Pa.), who led the opposition to Adegbiles nomination and read a letter from Faulkners widow on the Senate floor. The Senate affirmed that our criminal justice system must never be abused to propagate a dishonest, radical agenda.

Other more impressive cuts include wiping out ground combat vehicles, which saves $51 million. Trimming subsidies for poor families to heat their homes would save another $625 million. In his latest budget, the President proposed 136 cuts, yielding $17 billion in savings. It was the fewest number of cuts proposed since he first took office in 2009. By contrast, Obama pledged 215 cuts with $25 billion in savings just last year.

This is a big deal. It makes a big difference in the lives of a lot of families, Obama said to more cheering. It was a celebrity mood at the university, more of a pep rally in contrast to the sombre tone at the University of Hartford last year when Obama came to encourage gun control legislation an initiative led by Connecticut after the murders of 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012. Obama was joined on the stage by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, Gov.

He said Republicans and Democrats have spent lots of time in the recent past airing their differences but it’s now time to find a way to strike an accord. | ASSOCIATED PRESS reddit More: WASHINGTON (AP) Republicans are dismissing President Barack Obama’s new $3.9 trillion budget as nothing more than a Democratic manifesto for this fall’s congressional campaigns. But the fiscal plan is taking hits from another quarter too anti-deficit groups. Obama on Tuesday sent lawmakers a 2015 budget top-heavy with provisions that have little chance of becoming law. They included $1 trillion in tax increases mostly on the rich and corporations and a collection of spending boosts for programs like consumer protection and improved technology in schools. Obama calls it an evenhanded attempt to spur the economy.

Alan Viard, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a former staff economist for the George W. Bush administration, said he does see immense differences between Obama’s and Ryan’s fiscal plans. In effect, Obama would tweak the budget to try to shrink income disparities.

In that sense, Obama’s plan could be seen as a less dramatic approach in that it would stay closer to the country’s existing path, Viard says. “There’s nothing ‘socialist’ in Obama’s budget.
