Former Ag Secretary Blasts Presidentís Budget Proposal

Nebraska Senator and Former Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns says the country is in need of serious budgeting that spends responsibly and reins in the heavy hand of government. He says the budget proposed by President Obama Tuesday isn't serious at all. According to Johanns - the proposal is a political tool that spends more, taxes more and fails to address much-needed entitlement reforms. He says it includes 56-billion dollars in new spending this year and 791-billion dollars in spending increases over the next decade - paid for with tax hikes on American families.
