This is NOT a budget proposal. President Obama wants how much? Really? He is serious? Double your budget, double your fun? Double your taxes, double your fun? This is an agenda driven proposal. This is pure unadulterated politics. This is a wish list that Bernie Sanders would be extremely proud of. It is a slap in the face of any reasonable American. Thankfully, it does not have a prayer.

Associated Press Reports:
President Obama sent Congress on Tuesday his eighth and final budget, proposing to spend a record $4.1 trillion on a number of initiatives. They include launching a new war on cancer, combating global warming and fighting growing threats from ISIS terrorists.
In all, Obama’s budget would increase taxes by $2.6 trillion over the coming decade, nearly double the $1.4 trillion in new taxes Obama sought and failed to achieve in last year’s budget.
GOP lawmakers said Obama’s proposal to impose a $10 per barrel tax on crude oil to bring in an additional $319 billion over the next decade had no chance of winning approval in Congress. Obama’s budget would use that extra money to fund billions of dollars in alternative transportation programs as part of the president’s efforts to deal with global warming
