Yarmuth Anticipates Lively Budget Debate

Congressman John Yarmuth of Louisville says he's looking forward to a spirited debate over President Obama's proposed budget for the next fiscal year.The budget outlines $3.55 trillion in spending, with particular focus on health care, energy, education and infrastructure.Some Republican legislators have criticized the budget for its spending proposals. Yarmuth says he looks forward to seeing the GOP's proposal."The Republicans have actually developed what they're calling an alternative budget, because we have been asking the Republicans to help contribute to the process and not just take shots at it," says Yarmuth.The previous year's budget proposed $3.1 trillion in spending, with less money going to the three largest entitlement programs, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
