According to the White House, “The President’s Fiscal Year 2014 Budget demonstrates that we can make critical investments to strengthen the middle class, create jobs, and grow the economy while continuing to cut the deficit in a balanced way.” What do you think of this budget? I have mixed feelings, one of which is that the LAST thing we want to be is Charlie Brown as Lucy repeatedly pulls the football away at the last second, causing us to fall painfully on our butts. Yet why is it that this image keeps popping into my mind as I watch President Obama keep trying, over and over again, to meet Republicans half way, and then have them slap him in the face/kick him in the groin/etc? Anyway, we’ll see, but I’m certainly not holding my breath expecting different results this time around, with Mitch McConnell and John Boehner playing the role of Lucy.
