As Obama unveils budget, deficit hits post-WWII record
By Steven Thomma and David Lightman
President Barack Obama unveiled his first federal budget proposal Thursday, a $3.55 trillion plan for 2010 that would start to alter the course of American government dramatically.
He sought to put his imprint on the coming decade with an agenda that’s sharply different from the past eight years under Republican President George W. Bush, including universal health care, broad tax cuts and a helping hand for the working and middle classes, greater regulation of business and an aggressive plan to limit emissions that cause global warming.
