Obama to Seek Military Budget Increase

Posted January 30, 2015 at 9:12am

Reuters reports that “President Barack Obama will call for a 7 percent rise in U.S. domestic and military spending in his budget that would end caps known as ‘sequestration,’ the White House said on Thursday, setting up a new source of conflict with Republicans in Congress.”  

“Obama intends to announce his budget plans during a meeting with congressional Democrats in Philadelphia later in the day.”  

“The fiscal 2016 budget, which the administration plans to unveil on Monday, would fund a host of programs that Republicans are unlikely to support.”
