For Obama, an election-year budget without drama
FILE - In this April 8, 2013, file photo, printed copies of President Barack Obama's proposed budget plan for fiscal year 2014 are prepared for binding at the U.S. Government Printing Office in Washington, Monday, April 8, 2013. Six years into his presidency, Obama is unveiling a budget on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, for fiscal year 2015 that for once does not herald a partisan legislative showdown. There's no push to overhaul health care as he did in 2009, no drive as in 2010 to restrict Wall Street, or to increase taxes as in 2011 and 2012, or to halt automatic spending cuts as in 2013.
