Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns says President Obama’s proposed 4(T)Trillion dollar budget isn’t going anywhere.


The president has submitted a budget that increases spending by 55(B)Billion dollars and proposes one trillion dollars more in taxes to pay for the extra spending and reduce the deficit.
Johanns expects Congress to stick with the spending plan agreed to at the end of last year rather than consider the president’s proposal.

Johanns says the Senate should enter the regular budget process, which means considering amendments and debating their merits.
