Budget: General Overview

An update posted yesterday at CQPolitics reported that, “President Obama proposed a $3.8 trillion fiscal 2011 budget Monday that administration officials are touting as a prescription for both adding jobs to the economy and reducing deficits over the next decade [See: “Remarks by the President on the Budget,” transcript, video].

“Obama proposed $1.16 trillion in discretionary spending, not including military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. That would be a 2.7 percent increase over the $1.13 trillion set to be spent in fiscal 2010.”
