Liberal House Democrats on Monday unveiled a 2013 budget that increases taxes by $4.7 trillion more than President Obama proposed in his own budget last month.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus said the taxes are necessary to fund $2.9 trillion in new stimulus spending to put Americans back to work and rebuild the middle classes while reducing the deficit. This new spending includes canceling the cuts in last Augusts debt-ceiling deal between Congress and the White House.
The CPC budget will be offered as an amendment this week to the House GOP budget for 2013, which contains $2 trillion less in revenue than Obama has proposed over 10 years.

Both parties want to do that so they don’t have to face sequestration that will hit equally defense and welfare spending. This is the reality: Both parties are incapable of cutting spending.
