The President on the Budget

The President takes on the press over his budget submission, admitting that he has not tackled the big budget drivers but urging “patience” as he works on longer term bipartisan solutions. He talked about Social Security, saying he felt that it only needed minor tweeks to be made solvent for the long term, and defended his not putting forth changes in the budget for medicare and medicaid, saying that he is prepared to negotiate solutions only on a bipartisan basis, and he is not going to put forward an “Obama plan” without some Republican participation. The dance continues.
