On Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama’s budget, to be released next week, will be incredibly detailed. So detailed, in fact, that he said it would “blow your mind.” Undoubtedly, he is correct, considering his record of dramatically unsuccessful budget proposals. The President has yet to propose a budget that has garnered even one vote in the House or the Senate in 2012 or 2011.
Obama’s mind-blowing budget would supposedly chain increases in entitlement benefits to inflation (a measure opposed by the hard left), but also calls for massive new taxes, as per Obama’s usual arrangement. And, of course, we have yet to see where Obama will spend all of his proposed tax increases. That will be truly mind-blowing, considering that we are already spending taxpayer money on vital projects like building robotic squirrels and studying duck penises.
