OBAMA'S 2015 BUDGET --- ONLY FOR DEMOCRATS AND THEIR VOTES
FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL 02/20/2014
Government of the people, bythe people and for the people is no longer for ALL the people. It's now for the 50% of people, who elect and support Democrats, who aren't traditional Democrats by any means. They are Wilsonian Progressives, many even more radical than Wilson intended. But, who's responsible? The people. Voters who vote reflexively for the "D" and those who don't take the time or use the energy necessary to counter them. A sad sign of our times that, by all indicators, will continue unchanged.
Barack Obama's 2015 budget will not include policies in his previous budgets
that have been favored by Republicans, a White House official said, including a
change in the Consumer Price Index that would affect Social Security. Instead,
Mr. Obama's budget will present proposals supported by his own Democratic Party,
such as tax increases aimed at the high-income earners, setting up an
election-year battle over fiscal priorities.
president's decision to abandon Republican proposals, such as the so-called
chained CPI that has been part of bipartisan talks over the last three years,
makes clear the White House does not expect budget negotiations with Republicans
to bear any fruit this year. His budget, due out early next month, is set to be
more of a political document in an election year.
