President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2013 Budget
Just another Tax-and-Spend Proposal
On February 13, President Obama released his budget proposal for the fiscal year starting October 1, 2012. Just like every budget he has offered, this proposal spends too much, taxes too much, uses budget and accounting gimmicks, and fails to address the nation’s biggest challenges. Last year, the President’s budget was so unserious that the Senate rejected it 97-0; not even a single member of his own party supported the plan. This year he hasn’t done much better.
