Instead of doing it "for" the children, we're doing it "to" the children. The Senate finally released a budget yesterday. If approved unchanged it would increase our federal budget from 3.6 trillion dollars in 2013, to 5.7 trillion dollars in 10 years, up 62% a year from what we already cannot afford and have to heavily borrow against.

When asked by a republican congressman yesterday how a family could live like this (greatly overspending its budget), Obama said, "America is not a family." Tell that to the children.

Senate Democrats Proposed Budget Increases Spending 62% Over Next Decade…
Via TWS:

Senator Patty Murray, the Democratic chair of the Senate Budget Committee, finally released a budget today. Year over year, in this proposed budget, spending jumps dramatically.

For instance, from this year’s budget to next year’s proposed budget, spending would increase by $162 billion. This year, the federal government will spend $3.599 trillion; under Murray’s budget, the federal government would be on track to spend even more.

“Murray’s budget spends $2.2 trillion more in 2023 (the last year of the budget window) than the 2013 levels " a 62% increase (significantly outpacing inflation),” says a staff member on the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.
