Obama introduces $4.1 trillion budget based on rosy assumptions

by Dave Boyer  |  published on February 9, 2016

Introducing a federal budget that Hillary Clinton is sure to love, President Obama submitted a $4.14 trillion spending plan to Congress Tuesday that would reduce deficits by relying on speculative liberal assumptions of tax increases, immigration reform and economic growth.

Total federal spending would rise about 5 percent under Mr. Obama’s spending plan, although discretionary spending would increase less than 1 percent, with most of that rise in defense programs.

In his budget message to Congress, the president said his final spending plan “is about answering the big questions that will define America and the world in the 21st century.” It includes big spending increases to address the impact of global warming, a $10-per-barrel fee on oil to pay for clean-energy initiatives, and tuition-free community college.

Speaker Paul D. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, called the proposal “a progressive manual for growing the federal government at the expense of hardworking Americans.”

“President Obama will leave office having never proposed a budget that balances — ever,” Mr. Ryan said in a statement. ” Americans deserve better. We need to tackle our fiscal problems before they tackle us.”

    Obama’s “budget” is NOT based on “rosy assumptions”, it’s based on the desire for more POWER over the citizens. You disembowel the productive members of our nation by confiscating more and more of their “wealth” and use the proceeds to buy the loyalty of the useless, and guarantee continuing loyalty by cutting off those who object by either raising the taxes or cutting off the “benefits” of whichever group (or individual), the offending one belongs to be they the ungrateful “givers” or the undeserving “takers”

    $10 per barrel of oil additional tax that will go straight from the taxpayers’ pockets into the pockets of Bari’s Green Tech cronies. If one will recall the billions that were shoveled into green tech that produced not one damned thing. Bari’s save the planet is nothing of the sort, its just a scheme to transfer massive wealth from us to them.

      Well, he has been charged with the job of completely destroying our financial economy. That means creating enough debt that it will be impossible to pay it off. THAT’S HIS JOB AND HE WON’T BE STOPPED.

        Obama is working Cloward/Piven to perfection, but the good news is that a couple NGOs are taking him to court and getting stays on his EOs and unlawful EPA regulations. As it is his Clean Energy Action via the EPA has been stayed until it can be reviewed by the SCOTUS and not likely that will occur until mid-2017.

          Agree it’s good news, but I consider it way too little, and way too late. The damage is done and cannot be reversed.


    $74 Million dollars for the Obama VACATIONS ? NO PUBLIC OUTCRY ? GUTLESS GOP AND DEMOs / PROGRESSIVEs PROBABLY ARE APPLAUDING…Bill and Hillary with Chelsea are planning to waste far more as they will not be less greedy !!….watched part of the ” budget news conference “…it would be extremely difficult to find a greater gaggle of gag’em toe suckers out to spread total guano….not a believable idea in this gut-emptying sucker song…OBAMA and HIS SUCK UPS ,such as Holder and Lynch, continue to wallow in self deception and publicly display their total withdrawal from reality……will Lynch prove to be totally NO LAW LYNCH ? when Obama is jailed for his treason, the cell will have to be padded very deeply….does he wear his aluminum brain-protecting helmet while with these people ? does he wear pants or has he gone ala Marlon Brando ?


    When our King leaves office he will be leaving one big mess, and he can take his global warming with him and stick it where the sun don’t shine

      Not a chance! It would not matter anyway, POTUS Purple Lips would simply ignore it and continue on as he has done for 7 years. And the scary part is, he’s not done yet, not even close.

        ONE SCREW UP PER MONTH and his Final Destruction of the Republic will be accomplished or left for SHIL-LIAR-RY to finish….IF only SCOTUS will RDUSCOVER their SPINES after the Carbon issue and sink ODUMBOCARE and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION mandates also …

    • The Redhawk

      Well may be Jackson-LEE already grew a Triple set…she does things BIG and a Pair is below her ability to grow some!

    The POTUS 44 is too precise and deliberate he doesn’t make assumptions.Especially when it involves finance and budget matters. That’s what the GOP/TP’s do, one only have to look back on the number of times they shut-down government operations because they couldn’t tackle the budget.

    GOP Austerity Ghouls Still Using Default Threat to Extort Disastrous Budget Concessions Intent to Pay US Obligations Despite Republican Sabotage. But they flinched on their last government shutdown (bluff) attempt. Despite Republican Sabotage tactics POTUS 44 labors on despite their irresponsible roadblocks.
