Another important distinction is control of Congress. There's a reason President Obama hasn't gotten a budget passed since 2010. And his proposals have been so laughably expensive since then that they've been universally discarded by virtually every member of Congress. If you look at any of Obama's federal budget proposals, the status quo seems like a bargain. Even Tony's friend Andy Sullivan took it as a slap in the face.

If you look at what Obama's proposed, Congress isn't tying his hands from making things better. They're keeping him from making it worse.
