§  OObama's proposed budget includes $476B for transportation


President Barack Obama unveils his budget today. It's expected to allocate $476 billion for roads and transportation projects over six years, increase taxes on the wealthy and cut the federal deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years. Republicans criticize the budget for failing to deal adequately with the deficit and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., predicts the budget won't pass. "You can't spend $1.40 for every dollar you take in," says David Walker, former U.S. comptroller general.
