Budget Battle Royale

In the days leading up to the formal release of Obama's proposed budget, the president was getting hit from the right and the left. Republicans think it doesn't cut deeply enough, while liberals argue it goes too far, particularly with regard to Social Security benefits. The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is threatening to go after incumbent Democrats who vote for benefit cuts during the 2014 primary election cycle.
