President Barack Obama’s proposed fiscal year 2015 budget would raise taxes on the wealthy and cut military spending while funding a minimum wage hike, expanding preschool and improving beleaguered roads.
Obama announced his $3.9 trillion budget proposal Tuesday morning. The plan has already been met with criticism from Republican opponents. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, tweeted that the budget would be “spending too much, borrowing too much [and] taxing too much.”The proposal is not expected to be adopted by Congress.
The proposal also includes a separate set of programs called the Opportunity, Growth, and Security Initiative which totals $56 billion. Half the money would come from spending cuts elsewhere and the other half would come from reducing tax benefits from the retirement accounts of the wealthy. It would go to investing in early childhood education and clean energy research and boosting economic growth in disadvantaged neighborhoods, among others programs.
