(CNN) – President Barack Obama's budget for next year will now push for a large expansion in spending on education and job training, and will not slow the growth of social security accounting for inflation, something he promised the GOP just last year.
Speaker John Boehner's office says: "The President has no interest in doing anything, even modest, to address our looming debt crisis. ... With three years left in office, it seems the President is already throwing in the towel."
On the other side, Boehner put the breaks on immigration reform.
Is Obama's budget a move to rally the base? The Wall Street Journal's Carol Lee and Time's Michael Crowley discuss.
