No wonder Republicans laughed at Obama when he talked about a spending freeze in his State of the Union Address last week:
President Obama will unveil his budget proposal for next year– It includes a 6% increase in spending over last year.

President Obama is to unveil tomorrow a $3.8 trillion budget proposal — a 6 percent increase over last year, according to a published report.

The proposal will include $25 billion for struggling states and provide funding increases for programs at the Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the Census Bureau.
Obama tripled the US national deficit his first year in office.
It was historic.
