Although Barack Obama has killed NASA's hopes for a moon mission, he has successfully brought us a proposed budget from Mars.
The president is asking for a mind-boggling $3.8 trillion, and declaring a "budget freeze" that actually locks in current spending excesses at such ridiculous levels that economists are losing hope that America's fiscal future can ever be salvaged.
Rather than cut spending, the president is proposing higher taxes on small businesses (which will further discourage the job market), the Evil Rich, the dead (through a restored Estate Tax), and middle class working families.
Which means, of course, that no Democratic voters will be affected.
