Obama unveils election year 'growth and jobs' budget

Copies of the Obama Administration's proposed budget are seen at the Senate Budget Committee hearing room March 4, 2014 in Washington, DCPresident Barack Obama proposed a budget Tuesday for the coming fiscal year that has less to do with managing US finances than with stemming his party’s losses in congressional elections. The mildly expansionary $3.9-trillion plan has little chance of passing Congress but Obama will use it as a platform to underline his populist voter-friendly narrative ahead of the polls in November. Obama’s Democrats have almost no chance of winning back the House of Representatives and are in grave peril of losing the Senate — a scenario that would guarantee a miserable last two years in office for the president. Senior White House officials admit the budget document is largely aspirational, given that the president’s top priorities are routinely blocked by Republicans in Congress.
